Arts & Entertainment Plan

Health insurance for Ottawa Arts Council members through the Arts & Entertainment Plan®

Need personal health insurance? Membership in the Ottawa Arts Council comes with access to the popular Arts & Entertainment Plan-- an affordable health insurance plan offered by the not-for-profit insurer AFBS. And accessing the plan has become even easier with the online quoting and enrollment functionality which boasts the fastest application process in Canada.

The Arts & Entertainment Plan® is designed to help artists manage their health care costs. Ottawa Arts Council members are guaranteed acceptance* into the plan, with no medical questionnaires necessary and no refusals based on pre-existing conditions.

There are two plan options: Standard and Comprehensive. Both options offer dental, prescription drug, extended health care (hospital room, acupuncture, massage etc…), and travel emergency medical coverage. Both options also provide life and AD&D insurance and a Member and Family Assistance Program. There’s a monthly payment option available and premiums may be tax deductible.  

The Arts & Entertainment Plan® website will give you a price quote in just two steps and it enables you to enroll in the plan and pay online by credit card. Once you're registered you'll have access to a new member portal where you can login and view your account details.
