Historically it’s been the case that the self-employed are also the ones paying the most for health insurance. This might not be so bad in the short term, especially when you’re just starting your business and money is tight, but in the long run life’s calamities usually find a way to catch up to you.
So where do you start?
For many, the first stop is to an online health insurance brokerage that sells health insurance plans from the major carriers. Usually their websites function a lot like a health insurance version of Travelocity, where you can search generally or specifically for health insurance plans then compare them against one another to see how they match up.
