There are a few things we talk about consistently over here at YNOT Cam. One of them is the sustained level of discrimination experienced by people who work in all aspects of the sex work industry. Different people in different areas experience discrimination in different ways, yes, but it happens across the board regardless.
One place where things get sticky is healthcare. In addition to healthcare being a ridiculous clusterfuck on its own, when you factor in the sex work aspect it gets extra complex. We spoke to Allyson Wonderland about this issue a long while ago, and you can check out her service Succexxxful to learn more.
Anyway, with all this in mind, Clips4Sale recently launched a platform to help studios, models, creators and others otherwise in their universe — and based in the US — to navigate health care. Sounds like a great and much-needed service. Read on for some press material about the program.
Navigating the healthcare marketplace in the US can be confusing and intimidating. And if you’re part of the adult industry, the process can be even more overwhelming. Clips4Sale (C4S), the video clips market leader, is here to help streamline this process with their new healthcare portal.
Clips4Sale has partnered with VelaPoint to offer a healthcare marketplace that connects C4S models and producers with personalized healthcare plan options. US-based models and producers can simply reach out via C4S’s new healthcare portal to speak to a dedicated agent well-versed in fetish content production and health-relevant issues. The agent will then present plan options at no cost to the creator.
This service is currently available for all C4S US-based models and producers with individual, family, company, and more related healthcare and insurance plans. Agents are available now in all 50 states, and unlike most insurers who have specified enrollment dates, enrollment on the portal is offered year-round. Depending on where you live, the number of plans available and requirements will vary. The portal is open to all United States models and producers with a C4S store.
“Being uninsured or underinsured can put your health at risk, as well as your finances if you’re seriously ill, have an accident, or need surgery,” said Dariusz, Clips4Sale’s General Manager. “Healthcare is essential and should be easy to obtain and affordable for everyone.”
“With our new healthcare portal, our content partners, models, and producers won’t have to worry about being judged for the industry they work in when shopping for health insurance,” Dariusz continued. “Clips4Sale is excited to help our US-based models and studios get the insurance coverage they need with a level of service they deserve.”
Clips4Sale pays a monthly service fees to VelaPoint for the dedicated webpage, service agents, and phone line, while VelaPoint maintains and implements the overall service. One hundred percent of any affiliate commission generated by Clips4Sale through the healthcare portal will be donated to charity. Our first recipient will be the Sex Workers Outreach Project (SWOP) and Clips4Sale will match the donated amount. In this way, the portal will help models and studios two-fold as SWOP’s focus is to preserve sex workers’ rights, mitigate violence, and challenge unjust stigma through education and advocacy.
If you’re a model or producer and do not yet have a Clips4Sale store, now, more than ever, is the time to join and become part of the C4S family. Clips4Sale is the video clips market leader and was the first downloadable video clips site. It’s also the only clip site that prides itself on experience, trust, integrity, fairness, and diversity, and benefits from the highest traffic. Get started at clips4sale.com/clips/page/openastudio.
