  • How does Set Protect work in conjunction with the health plans of IATSE, DGC, Teamsters, and other guilds?
    Set Protect offers a different service that is different to health benefits. Health benefits are claimable outside of work after visiting specialty health practitioners. Our memberships include access to telemedicine for physical health as well as advanced mental healthcare, that is accessible inside of work. It is health coverage that can be purchased in addition to health benefits. Our virtual healthcare options close the gap between not being able to access healthcare while in production, and enable extra costs incurred through the platform (additional therapy sessions, or seeing a specialty healthcare provider, for example) to be claimed back through your benefits program. It creates an eco system of healthcare that is accessible at all times.
  • What accessibility to health and well-being does a Set Protect Membership provide?
    365 days a year, anywhere in Canada, from your phone or computer. One of the biggest reasons why entertainment industry workers are not seeking the help they need is because of inaccessibility: Not being able to leave set / stage / location Not having regular work hours to be able to make an appointment with a healthcare professional Not having the time or capacity to go to a walk-in clinic outside of set Not having a family doctor Having a family doctor but having to wait days or weeks for an appointment Not having an employer or union / guild to supply health support: freelance, non-union, working towards union membership, working in a film role that is non-unionized (covid workers and intimacy professionals, for example) Having an employer or being a member of a union / guild but they do not supply this kind of health support By providing entertainment workers with virtual healthcare coverage it removes these access barriers and enables them to access the care they need.
  • Why would a union / guild / organization use Set Protect to provide virtual health to their members or employees, instead of going directly to them?
    Virtual healthcare is new technology that is constantly developing and changing. By choosing Set Protect as your provider of this service you are: - Not adding this task to anyone's current job role within your organization, and therefore not having to train someone to use the technology; constantly keeping up to date with it, as well as handling all admin - Having a dedicated team that speaks your entertainment industry language - we understand your needs We take the following off your plate: - Management of all member additions and removals, whenever you need - Payments - you pay Set Protect directly - and are only charged per members you sign-up - Ensuring you have a flexible contract option with no minimum term - All admin associated with your account - Healthcare knowledge of best options in the market By choosing Set Protect you are utilizing our expertise to look after this new and developing tool, to provide the best well-being experience to your members or team. We are here to do the legwork for you!
