Getting a Self-Employed Health Insurance Plan

Back to questions list

Most of the employees get the health insurance from their employers and there is a very handy option! This way, they shouldn’t worry about how to choose a health insurance plan from the right company. The employer picks up the best offer for the employees independently.

Still, when you are self-employed, it becomes more complicated to deal with health insurance. Unfortunately, self-employed people without health coverage create a larger group than self-employed people with it.

There are several ways to get health insurance if you are self-employed. You can apply to different reliable or startup coverage companies and ask for the most affordable offers, discount programs, or a la carte coverage. Nevertheless, it can be quite too expensive for single self-employed people.

Therefore, you can create a group of the entrepreneurs from the same professional field. This way, the members of such group receive lower rates and more reasonable packages.

This way is the most profitable and the easiest one to get a good and cheap insurance. By the way, don’t forget that your previous insurance from the last job (if you were a simple employee) lasts for 6 months.
