Premium-Free Health Plan Benefit Created by DGA Plans Board for Participants Who Lost Earned Active Coverage After COVID-19 Production Shutdown


November 25, 2020

Recognizing the pandemic’s ongoing impact, the DGA Plans Board of Trustees has created a new premium-free limited benefit health plan in order to continue to be able to provide health benefits for eligible participants who lost Earned Active Coverage in 2020 following the COVID-19 production shutdown. The new Bronze Plus Plan will provide coverage for the period January 1, 2021 to March 31, 2021 only, as an alternative to COBRA Continuation Coverage. It is available to those participants for whom the Health Plan is their primary coverage, and who lost their Earned Active Coverage on June 30th, September 30th, or December 31st, 2020.

This premium-free Bronze Plus Plan includes the same level of benefits as the DGA Bronze COBRA Plan, as well as prescription drug coverage. Qualifying participants will have the choice of choosing either the: (1) premium-free Bronze Plus Plan or (2) COBRA Continuation Coverage by paying the applicable premium amount.
