AFM Local 257, Sound Healthcare & Financial Expand Member Benefits

The Nashville Musicians Association, AFM Local 257, and its insurance partner, Sound Healthcare & Financial, have expanded their True Group Health Insurance plan and are now offering a full array of Union Member Voluntary Group Benefits at discounted group rates for AFM 257 members.

Voluntary Group Benefits include: Dental (Blue Cross Blue Shield of TN); Vision (Blue Cross Blue Shield of TN); GapAssist Coverage – Accident, Critical Illness, Inpatient Indemnity (Symetra); Group Life Insurance (Guardian); International Travel Coverage (Crum & Forster); Pet Insurance (Nationwide); Auto and Home Insurance (MetLife); and Complete Identity Theft Protection (Secure CyberID).

“These new benefits are all part of our ongoing commitment to providing maximum value and quality services to AFM 257 members and the Nashville music community as a whole,” said Nashville Musicians Association President Dave Pomeroy. “In addition to promoting respect for musicians and getting them paid fairly for the work they do, we have created numerous ways to save union members far more than the cost of our annual dues, which are less than $300/year. We welcome inquiries from anyone and everyone who wants to learn more about the only organization that looks out for the welfare of Music City musicians.”

“Access to Group Voluntary Benefits at discounted group rates is a first for the independent musicians and music professionals in our creative community,” said Sound Healthcare & Financial Founder and CEO, RJ Stillwell. “Most professionals in music are self-employed independent contractors. We’ve been able to bring some of the biggest names in insurance together to provide Voluntary Group Benefits to AFM 257 members without an employer/employee relationship. We encourage current AFM 257 members to take advantage of these benefits and those in our music community who are not members to consider joining. There’ve never been more reasons to join the Nashville Musicians Association, AFM Local 257.”

Enrollment in the AFM 257 Union Member Voluntary Benefits is exclusively available through Sound Healthcare & Financial. More information is available at or at 615.256.8667 / [email protected]
