Along with all the positive feedback on our infographic guide to ObamaCare for individual artists, we got a lot of requests for a follow-up guide to help small businesses. (Fractured Atlas is a small business, and if you have at least one employee, this applies to you too!) This is a big moment for us as [...]
In 2001, under the guise of the Artists Affordable Healthcare Initiative, Fractured Atlas began offering health insurance to a long underserved population of artists. For decades, non-traditional employment models had put our community at a severe disadvantage in the US health insurance marketplace. With its ambitious promise of a slightly more level playing field, our [...]
Our friends at Future of Music Coalition (FMC) and Artists’ Health Insurance Resource Center (AHIRC) are conducting an online survey through August 31 to assess how many US-based artists have health insurance on the eve of the Affordable Care Act.
Prior surveys have found that artists of all types — dancers, actors, musicians, visual artists, filmmakers — [...]

So we couldn’t help but notice this blog post by Gary Shapiro, President of the Consumer Electronics Association, attacking House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi for promoting the idea that artists should have access to affordable health insurance.
We’d like to introduce our two newest additions to our pocket guide series: The Artists’ Guide to Health Reform and The Artists’ Guide to Health Insurance.
The Artists’ Guide to Health Reform provides a general overview of the new healthcare law. If you’ve overwhelmed by all the media on health reform and you’re still unsure of [...]
