As we are all undoubtedly aware, one of the biggest downsides to being a freelancer is health insurance costs. People covered by large, corporate health plans enjoy tremendous economic advantages.
But if you’re one of the 57.3 million U.S. workers in the gig economy (AKA self-employed), those large-risk-pool plans are not an option. We don’t have an HR Department figuring this stuff out for us. We are on our own.
So What’s the Best Plan for Us?
At our next meeting of the Freelance Forum, we’ll host an informative panel discussion: “The Best Health Insurance Options for Freelancers in 2019.”
We’ll look at the Affordable Care Act and its cost and coverage implications, as well as healthcare insurance trends in Georgia. And, we’ll explore alternative solutions you may not be aware of.
Healthcare coverage is more than just premiums. Find out which plans work best for you and your family. Even if you’re covered by your spouse’s corporate plan, that may not be the best solution!
With outside-the-box thinking, you can find plans as low as $100 a month!
Our panel will include representatives from two local companies:
Hal Schlenger works with HIPnation, an ecosystem of doctors, supporting specialists, imaging centers, labs and service providers. They manage costs by leveraging the power of primary care, with no co-pays.
Mark Dunn is with America’s Benefit. His New Era Health Plans are leading the health insurance revolution, offering a new era of modern, flexible health insurance solutions.
Just north of Brookhaven and south of the Perimeter, The Oliver Chamblee (previously Olmsted Chamblee)
is a creative living space and new Freelance Forum Sponsor. You’ll love its comfy furniture and casual vibe.
It also features plenty of meeting space, free parking, and is within walking distance of the
Chamblee MARTA station.
Should be a great event. Hope to see you there!
The Oliver Chamblee is on Peachtree just north of Clairmont Road, on Chamblee Tucker,
in the heart of Chamblee.
