The Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America (SFWA) has partnered with Lighthouse Insurance Group (LIG) Solutions to provide assistance with a choice of health insurance options for members based in the US. SFWA is part of a coalition of nine organizations known as the Book Industry Health Insurance Partnership (BIHIP); other members include the American Booksellers Association, Book Industry Study Group, Independent Book Publishers Association, Novelists Inc., and Western Writers of America.
Since organizations are not currently permitted to pool resources across state lines to offer members health insurance at negotiated rates, the coalition sought “a company that could provide members with extensive knowledge of the health insurance market to help members navigate the wide array of insurance options, including ACA-compliant major medical, Medicare/supplements, short term policies, vision, dental, critical care, supplemental coverage, as well as small group/Health Reimbursement Arrangements (HRAs).”
Enrollment will begin in the Fall, and SFWA will release more details soon.
