Happy 50th Birthday to the DGA-Producer Health Plan!

This year marks the Directors Guild of America-Producer Health Plan’s 50th birthday! The Health Plan was founded in 1969 as a result of collective bargaining agreements between the Directors Guild of America and Employers in the motion picture industry. Let’s take a look at how the Health Plan has grown during the past 50 years.

  • 1969: 1,440 participants (plus dependents)
    $556,000 paid in benefits
  • 2018: 8,449 participants (plus dependents)
    $123,000,000 paid in benefits
  • The Health Plan has paid nearly $2 billion in benefits over the last 50 years

Thank you to the Plan’s Trustees and participants, whose hard work now and through the years continues to make the DGA-Producer Health Plan one of the best in the entertainment industry.
