We love all of our clients, especially everyone at the Americana Music Association (but don’t worry it’s not a competition)! Not only do we appreciate everything they do for the music industry, they were also so kind to feature us in their most recent newsletter. They even gave us the premier spot ahead of their own news…we’re blushing!
They included an imperative reminder as well: ***the last day of open enrollment in the Affordable Care Act is March 31st! It is very important that you contact us before that date so that we may guide you in enrollment as licensed navigators of the ACA!***
No matter which organization you belong to, or your place in the creative community, Sound Healthcare & Financial is here to advocate for your wellbeing!
