Accessing Health Care for Artists in San Francisco

Banksy Hits San Francisco

If you’re an artist, self-employed or just underinsured, you might be interested in San Francisco’s health care option, Healthy SF. And what you need is a local singer/songwriter to explain it all to you. Rupa Marya, from Rupa and the April Fishes, is more than qualified. In addition to being a chanteuse of epic talents, Rupa is also a health practitioner — and I don’t mean that metaphorically, as a reference to the healing powers of song. No, Rupa is an actual MD!

Here’s the scoop:

The Community Music Forum brings you another chapter. . .A FREE presentation of how to access services available at low cost (or no cost) in SF. This session is OPEN TO ALL—not just artists but will highlight health issues that tend to be more prevalent in SF’s art scene.

We will have a representative from SF’s HEALTHY SF there to demystify the enrollment process and answer any questions you have about HEALTHY SF–if you qualify for it (you probably do), what medications and services are covered, what is not covered and how you get set up.

We will also have a list of providers available from other healing traditions who provide sliding scale services. And if you have any random health questions, there will be a handful of doctors in the house.

COME ON BY! and RSVP so we can get a headcount and make enough chai. ..
