There are a great many people who will find it impossible to break into self employment without the cushion of health insurance as they’ve known it. However, there are certainly options and plans that cater to those who’ve chosen the relative freedom of self employment. Insurance premiums are often higher than many who’ve worked for large corporations are used to paying, but those who’ve paid insurance premiums from a job with a small company may just find the rates far more reasonable than they thought, with a few helpful hints.
Those who have working spouses who are eligible for insurance are especially lucky when it comes to getting insurance. The laws regarding this differ from state to state, but in nearly all cases a spouse (and sometimes domestic partner) can make the switch when their own runs out.
