IATSE Health Plan

Preparing for upcoming contract negotiations, the IATSE has been reaching out to the membership for feedback about our health plan. I went to a town hall meeting near LAX last night hosted by IA President Matt Loeb and VP Mike Miller, and I have to say that it was one of the best large-group IA meetings I’ve ever been to. The attitude, openness and intelligence of the leadership was terrific, and I was proud to be a member of this organization.

Our current contract expires at the end of July, and the chief challenge is going to be the medical plan. For details, we heard presentations by John Garner and David Wescoe, who articulately laid out some of the issues. By many measures we have one of the best plans in the nation, with lots of options, high quality care, and low out-of-pocket costs. But the plan is projected to need a lot of money over the next three years. Solving that problem will undoubtedly be contentious, and members would be well advised to learn as much as they can about it. There will be another meeting tonight in Burbank. You can also watch videos from previous meetings on the IA website.
