Health Care For Artist

EXCELLENT HEALTHCARE AWAITS YOU!

Don't have healthcare coverage? Do you make less than $37,000 annually? Enroll yourself in the HHC Options program at the NYC public hospital of your choice and receive excellent, affordable, and comprehensive medical care (dental, ob/gyn, psychological services, prescription drugs, tests, etc.). We're talking REALLY reasonable fees here - from $15 to $60 per visit (NO monthly charges!) based solely on your income. You will be assigned your own doctor who will be able to refer you to other doctors and specialists accordingly - all at a fee-per-visit scaled according your income.

ARE YOU AN ARTIST OR ARTS WORKER?

ArtistAccess is a pilot program developed at Brooklyn's Woodhull Medical Center for ALL New York City based artists and arts workers. A special program of the pre-existing HHC Options program (with the same financial parameters and formula), ArtistAccess was designed specifically for artists living in any of NYC's five boroughs. Presently, the ArtistAccess program is ONLY available at Woodhull.

The defining elements of the ArtistAccess program are: you are provided with an 877 number to set up your initial financial and medical appointment at Woodhull, (877) 244-5600; you will be met at the entrance of the hospital at the date of your first appointment and escorted to your appointment; and if you'd like to, you can exchange artistic services for medical services - at Woodhull. To read more about this ground-breaking program, please visit www.dtw.org or
www.dancenyc.org to download the Woodhull Q&A and the ArtistAccess application. HAVE NO FEAR: The Financial Counselors at Woodhull are thoroughly aware of the income patterns of artists and art workers - if you are unable to provide proof of income with a pay stub, you will be asked to simply self-declare your annual income.

THIS IS IT! THE TIME HAS COME!
Now is your opportunity to get consistent, preventive, and truly affordable medical care. Go get the care you deserve - either via Woodhull's ArtistAccess initiative, or any of NYC's public hospitals!
