Anyone who is considering or is already covered by an Exchange or Individual Policy should review this information first.
The group insurance rates for plans offered by the Flex Plan are always guaranteed for the calendar year. If you still have an individual or exchange policy, you should compare the benefits and rates of your current plan to the plans offered through the Flex Plan to see which option is best for you.


If you are covered by Exchange or Individual Policy you cannot use employer contributions for the payment of those premiums. In addition, if you or your dependents are not covered by a group insurance contract, the employer monies cannot be used for reimbursement of out-of-pocket medical expenses (unless you have "Grandfathered" monies in your account). Your group insurance may be any group policy, it does not have to be a Flex Plan group policy. For more information please review our Frequently Asked Questions on this topic at

Need to make a Self Payment?
You may make a payment after you log-in by clicking on "Self Payment Information". You can also make a payment through our Automated Member Services System, Option 2.

The Entertainment Industry Flex Plan was created in 1985 to provide benefit solutions for Union Members in the Entertainment Industry. During this lengthy period of time, we have evolved to represent many affiliations of Unions throughout the United States and more than 31,000 members. As a result, we have learned and therefore refined what we do to continually improve service to our membership.
