“MHA has filled an urgent need in the music industry by providing access to health insurance. I am so grateful for the priceless guidance they gave me, and all the help they will provide for others like me in the future.”
Sarah Helen Parker is an independent graphic designer who has made her mark in the music industry. Sarah’s story: As Sarah said, “Choosing to work independently in a creative industry felt like a blind leap of faith, and health insurance was the furthest thing from my mind, until I needed it.” Sarah applied for individual health insurance and was declined. She needed a daily medication, but it was not in her budget. Sarah called the Music Health Alliance and her healthcare advocate carefully reviewed her previous health insurance application, her individual needs and her budget. MHA was able to identify the clerical error that caused her initial insurance declination. They were also able to find a better policy that was more suited for her needs, covered her medication and was still in her budget. MHA helped Sarah with her application and interview process. She is now fully covered by health insurance so she can focus on her design business.
