To bring this type of insurance coverage to the industry, Cast & Crew Entertainment Services established a multiple-employer health plan. Companies that choose to participate in the plan can ensure they are ACA compliant by providing medical coverage to all non-union employees.
This structure enables Cast & Crew Open HealthSM to provide employers with large-group pricing and benefits that are superior to market-based coverage that can be obtained elsewhere.
The plan complies with ERISA, the ACA and other applicable law, and is funded through a trust that has been established for the exclusive benefit of the participants. The trust will hold all the insurance contracts and be a conduit for payment of premiums.
