DGA Statement Supporting DGA-Pension and Health Plans Board of Trustees Unanimous Decision to Extend Free Major Medical Coverage for Qualifying Participants


October 3, 2023

Los Angeles – Today, the Board of Trustees for the DGA-Producer Pension and Health Plans has announced it has unanimously voted to approve the extension of the free Major Medical Plus coverage so members can retain access to healthcare.  

“I’m so proud the Board of Trustees unanimously voted to extend the vital health coverage of the Major Medical Plan to eligible Health Plan participants and their dependents to ease some of the burden that has come with unemployment during the current and past strikes,” shared DGA President Lesli Linka Glatter in a statement supporting the Board’s decision. “In difficult times, we all must remember what matters most — taking care of one another. By extending these health coverage terms and making care accessible to more participants, the leadership of the Plans is investing in the long-term wellbeing of our DGA family.”

The Board of Trustees previously offered this coverage to participants and their eligible dependents who lost Earned Active or regular Carry-Over coverage as of June 30, 2023 and September 30, 2023. Those who elect the coverage are now eligible for the extended Major Medical Plus Plan coverage through March 31, 2024, provided they remain on the plan through December 31, 2023. Eligible participants from these two groups were notified of their eligibility in early September.
