The system is kinda f@#ked – but you shouldn't be.

Health insurance open enrollment has arrived. This year, our experts have selected their favorite plans for freelancers, with new helpful guides and new carriers to help you save money in 2017.

When you buy through Freelancers Union, the entire freelance community benefits – at no additional cost to you. We’ve got your back when it comes to insurance: no markups, no hidden fees, and we’ll help you get the subsidies for which you qualify.

Even better? Your purchase strengthens the union. Without it, we wouldn’t be able to fight for policies like the Freelance Isn't Free Act – landmark legislation just passed in New York City protecting freelancers against late and nonpayment.

At Freelancers Union, we fight for better coverage options for freelancers every day. Access to affordable health care is a right, and right now, the system just isn’t working for freelancers. Our recent report finds that too many independent workers are going without insurance and we all know that costs are rising with each year.

That’s why it is so important for us to stand together - so that we can be sure the next system provides affordable, quality care to the United States’ 55 million independent workers.

Just because you’re purchasing health insurance as an individual this year doesn’t mean you have to go it alone. Our experts are here to help if you have trouble with your insurance during the year and you’ll be buying health insurance with a community of freelancers.

Join me in calling for a system that supports us and let’s build a better future for freelance work together.
