TUNE IN & TUNE UP R.I. Musicians Health Awareness Program is an initiative of the Rhode Island Music Hall of Fame.

Why is the R.I. Music Hall of Fame promoting health care?

While the primary function of the Rhode Island Music Hall of Fame (RIMHOF) is to inaugurate members annually into the Hall of Fame, archive Rhode Island music, and build a Hall of Fame museum, the organization is just as dedicated to developing other programs aimed at improving the lives and opportunities for local musicians and industry professionals.

RIMHOFís TUNE IN & TUNE UP Rhode Island Musicians Health Awareness Program is designed to ensure that musicians have up-to-date information to make decisions about one of the most pressing issues facing the music community Ė health awareness, healthcare, and health insurance.

TUNE IN & TUNE UP came about because RIMHOF Board members, many musicians themselves, were fed up with the lack of affordable health care options for the R.I. music community. We also know how confusing and daunting it is to understand what may be available to you as a self-employed person. After more than a year of research, a special committee assembled by
RIMHOF's board made plans to utilize RIMHOF's website, social media, print media, and special educational workshops to keep artists informed about healthcare options as well as other information needed to make smart healthcare decisions.

So... what exactly IS the TUNE IN & TUNE UP program?

TUNE IN & TUNE UP is the new health initiative of the Rhode Island Music Hall of Fame. If you are a professional Rhode Island musician or industry professional (soundman, engineer, roadie, tech crew etc.) OR the spouse of a musician/industry professional, we want you to sign up to become a member of the TUNE IN & TUNE UP program.

But why should I join TUNE IN & TUNE UP? Whatís in it for me?

Starting in Fall 2015, TUNE IN & TUNE UP will be offering seminars and workshops on health-related issues, soliciting retail outlets that will offer discounts to our members, and creating an ďartist-friendlyĒ website (tuneintuneup.org) which will try to help you navigate and more easily understand Rhode Islandís health care and wellness options. Everyone who signs up will
be issued a FREE TUNE IN & TUNE UP membership card.

TUNE IN & TUNE UP is also putting our money where our mouth is!

Everyone should get an annual physical... but we know many people donít. As a TUNE IN & TUNE UP member, if you get an annual physical and send us proof of your co-pay for that visit, TUNE IN & TUNE UP will cover the cost of your co-pay up to $25 each time you get an annual physical! Itís a win/win situation... YOU save some money, and WE get to know that members of the music community are doing the single most important preventative health thing they can do... So sign up today!

Iím still confused... is the TUNE IN & TUNE UP program a health insurance program?

TUNE IN & TUNE UP is NOT a health insurance program. We are a health awareness initiative aimed at Rhode Islandís music community. But that doesnít mean we wonít encourage you to GET health insurance. YOU SHOULD! And it is likely more affordable than you may think! Contact HealthSource RI at 1-855-574-2846 or visit www.healthsourceri.com.

TUNE IN & TUNE UPís MISSION

  • PROVIDE the music community with a TUNE IN & TUNE UP membership card which will get you discounts or money off health-related products or services from participating retail outlets

  • REFUND members up to $25 per year when you send us a co-pay receipt for your annual exam

  • CREATE an ďartist-friendlyĒ website dealing with health and wellness issues from a musicianís perspective

  • OFFER an informational series of workshops & talks discussing health care issues, prevention and alternative treatments

Make no mistake... trying to understand health care options is frustrating AND confusing... for all of us as well... BUT... doing nothing to take care of yourself CANNOT be an option. TUNE IN & TUNE UP is a work-in-progress and it will take time to be fully up-and-running as we envision it... but know that we are very serious about taking care of our own Ė the Rhode Island music community
