The health-care marketplace is complicated. Skyrocketing premiums, soaring deductibles and increased out of pocket costs are the new normal.
But at the PHBP we have you covered.
When we launched this plan in 2007 we made a commitment to offer free, high quality insurance for our freelance workforce, and in 2013 we expanded coverage to full time staff employees of eligible participating employers. We offer a robust variety of plans to eligible AICP General Members, all intended to maintain the highest levels of care and coverage at rates designed to protect your bottom line.
Medical coverage is provided by Anthem Blue Cross, the nation’s largest network of providers and all covered employees have optional self-paid voluntary benefits available to them as well.
Read below to learn more and contact the Plan at SeanC@phbp.org to discuss your potential eligibility for staff coverage.
Covered staff employees may choose from the following Anthem Blue Cross medical and prescription drug benefits. All plans utilize the most extensive networks offered by Anthem Blue Cross and its affiliated “Blue Card” Blue Cross Blue Shield networks where available. Employers must pay at least 51% of the employee premium.
Bundle #1— Vision and Dental
Optional Bundle #2— Basic Life, AD&D and Disability
New Voluntary Benefits (Purchase separately)—See the Employer Enrollment Guide for more details.
Freelance coverage remains at the core of the PHBP and is mandatory for all participating employers. The following job categories require contributions, including all modifiers, adjectives, prefixes, suffixes or descriptive terms that may be added to the job title except “Post” or other modifiers which indicate work done in a Post Production capacity.
The Plan was designed with intra-industry cross over in mind.
PHBP contributions are due on all “Covered Productions”, meaning the Production or Post Production of any moving image work regardless of the method, means or medium of production or post production (whether film/tape/digital/animation/CG or other) that promotes or advertises a brand, product or service to the general public, (including ‘Branded Content’, ‘Promos’, ‘Internet Only’, ‘Social Media Only’) regardless of the format, medium, platform or channel of distribution, but excluding music videos. It is the presence of an advertising or promotional aspect of a project that cements its classification as a “Commercial”, regardless of how it was created or where it is distributed.
