The Actors Fund - Health Care in Crisis Campaign, April 26, 2017.
Dear USA 829 Member:

I’m sure you know that there is still talk of making changes to crucial national health care benefits like the Affordable Care Act, Medicaid and Medicare.

But what you may not know is the devastating impact this could have on the performing arts community. Changes could force tens of thousands of arts professionals to go without health insurance or access to quality health care...artists with pre-existing conditions could once again be denied coverage.
We won’t sit idly by and let our community suffer.
That’s why The Actors Fund has launched our Health Care in Crisis Campaign—and we are counting on you to help us meet our $100,000 goal.  Please take a minute and click here to pitch in today.

Your gift today will be used to help:
• Expand our Artists Health Insurance Resource Center so we can provide informative education seminars, enrollment programs and counseling to every entertainment professional who seeks our help;
• Provide access to high quality health care services at our brand new Samuel J. Friedman Health Center for the Performing Arts;
• Protect health services for our seniors and expand The Lillian Booth Actors Home so we can accommodate more seniors who need nursing care; and  
• Continue all the other critical services that entertainment professionals rely on us for.

Please say you’ll help. Use our secure online form to make a generous donation today.

Thank you,
Renata Marinaro
Director of Health Services, National
