Statement from Freelancers Union Founder Sara Horowitz on the Supreme Court Healthcare Decision

Jun 28, 2012

Today's Supreme Court decision marks a significant victory for forward-looking healthcare innovations, and it will mean even more health insurance options for independent workers:

  • Subsidies will help low-income freelancers finally purchase health insurance
  • Health insurance exchanges will take the guess work out of the individual insurance market
  • Freelancers Insurance Company will continue to thrive in New York State, including opening a new, patient-centered medical home in Brooklyn this Fall
  • Freelancers Union will sponsor non-profit, consumer-driven health insurance CO-OPs in New York, New Jersey, and Oregon

Freelancers Union will continue to innovate new models of coverage that rely on solidarity, where instead of looking to private insurers to have their backs when times get tough, Americans can count on one another.
