ILLUSTRATION BY TIM LEE

The deadline to enroll in health insurance through the Affordable Care Act is coming up in about six weeks, at the end of March, but lots of people have already done the sign-up drill - including some artists and musicians who haven’t had insurance in years (or even ever). Musicians and artists are a chronically under-insured part of the U.S. population; so how are they faring under Obamacare so far? For more about that, see the story in Sunday’s paper.
