According to a recent survey, US-based artists are less likely to have health insurance than the general public. They are also unsure about the Affordable Care Act, and seek advice about how to navigate this new health care landscape.

A task force of musician and artist advocacy organizations are working together to help creatives learn more and take action on health care.
