For members, we just gave a general update on the My Membership home page, to the left of Member Chatter. We'll be putting updates on that page about health insurance coverage through Empire. Here's a summary of the current info:

  • If you switched from HIP or PerfectHealth to an Empire plan, you are covered now, and have been since January 1.
  • You do not need an Empire card to be covered.
  • We've just gotten off the phone with Empire, and the cards will be coming around January 14.
  • If you have a doctor's appointment this week, send us an email at membership@freelancersunion.org and we'll help troubleshoot it.
