Personal Health Insurance

Arts and Entertainment Plan

As a Theatre Ontario individual member — or a staff or volunteer member of a Theatre Ontario organization member — you are eligible to access benefits through the Arts & Entertainment Plan®.

The Arts & Entertainment Plan® is a national health insurance plan offered through a not-for-profit insurer (AFBS*) that’s easy to understand and simple to join.

The Arts & Entertainment Plan® offers two plans to choose from:

  • Standard Plan
  • Comprehensive Plan

Both plans offer you the same core benefit categories that include:

  • Dental
  • Prescription Drug
  • Extended Health Care (vision care, hospital rooms, medical equipment, massage etc…)
  • Travel Emergency Medical
  • Life
  • AD&D
  • The Member and Family Assistance Program (MFAP)

Coverage is available for your dependants, there’s a convenient monthly payment option and your premiums may be tax deductible.

There is no medical required, and as an Theatre Ontario individual member in good standing (or part of an organization member as described above), you are eligible to join.

For more details about the plan and to enroll go here, or email them at

If you would like to reach them by phone call 1-800 387-8897 x. 238.

*AFBS is a not-for-profit, member-owned and governed, insurance company that is exclusive to the artistic community – artists helping artists!
