Attention musicians attending the Hopscotch Music Festival: Alex Maiolo, project coordinator for FMC’s Health Insurance Navigation Tool (HINT), will be in downtown Raleigh, N.C. this weekend (September 9,10,11), to spread the word about FMC’s free service for musicians.
The Independent Weekly’s Hopscotch Music Festival matches North Carolina’s vibrant home-grown music scene with nationally popular acts. The three-day festival is sure to draw some well deserved attention to the region’s artists, while also showcasing headliners including Panda Bear and Public Enemy (don’t forget — Chuck will also be returning as panelist at our 10th Anniversary Future of Music Policy Summit.)
HINT is an information resource that helps musicians learn about their health insurance options. After scheduling an appointment on the HINT website, artists get a call from health insurance experts (who are also musicians) who go over an individual’s options on case-by-case, state-by-state basis.
In between all the live music and scmoozing, Alex will be talking to musicians and managers about HINT. He probably won’t have time to do one-on-one sessions, but if you’re a musician who’s planning on being at Hopscotch, you can shoot an email to stablenetATgmail.com to get set up for one of his informal group chats.
