Extended Health & Dental Insurance
Extended health and dental insurance is invaluable, but most professional dance artists do not have access to health benefits through an employer, which means that they are paying for essential health services out of pocket.
Medical services that many dance artists use on a regular basis to maintain their physical condition include massage therapy, chiropractics, osteopathy, naturopathy, physiotherapy and dentistry, and these services can be very expensive.
As self-employed freelance workers, and as dance artists whose physical wellbeing is crucial to ongoing professional success, finding affordable ways to maintain your health—and recuperate after injury—is absolutely essential.
CADA/BC recommends the following organizations who manage private extended health and dental plans. Each organization provides slightly different services, with plans that can be tailored to meet your personal needs and budget. It is important to compare the options before selecting an insurance provider.
