Getting Health Insurance If You're Self Employed


 Getting Health Insurance If You're Self Employed

If you are self-employed, it can be difficult to find affordable health insurance. Luckily, there are options. You can get health insurance through an employer or one of the following ways:

1) Purchase a plan through the Marketplace (formerly known as the Healthcare Exchange).
2) Enroll in a dental/vision/life/long term care plan with a Health Savings Account (HSA).
3) Take advantage of COBRA and other plans allowed by law.
4) Get on Medicaid.
