What's New

Open Enrollment Meetings
The Flex Plan is holding open enrollment meetings during December. For the dates and locations go to This page will be updated as new dates are available.

If you do not have coverage through the Flex Plan
You must go through the enrollment process to get insurance verification forms for 2019. If you do not have insurance information on file, you will not be eligible for claim reimbursements and may be automatically enrolled with medical insurance. The process only takes 2 minutes! Insurance cards sent in without the verification form will not be processed.

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.

Email Validation Procedure
If you have not enrolled on-line, the first time you log in you will be asked to provide your email address. You will then be sent a validation e-mail. When you receive the e-mail, click on the link, and you will be prompted to enter your PIN. Once you enter your PIN you will be logged in. This process must be completed one time prior to accessing your personal account information. Once you have validated your account, you may login as usual.


The Entertainment Industry Flex Plan began more than 30 years ago to provide benefit solutions for Union Members in the 'Industry'. During this lengthy period of time, we have evolved to represent many affiliations of Unions throughout the United States and more than 27,000 members. As a result, we have learned and therefore refined what we do to continually improve service to our membership.
