It's that time of year again! Everyone who buys health insurance on the individual marketplace has a small window of time when they can select a plan or make changes to their current coverage for the coming year. That period, known as Open Enrollment, starts today, November 1, and runs through December 15.
If you're not covered, it's more important than ever to make sure you're protected starting January 1. It's also more affordable than ever, thanks to increased subsidies and cost-sharing provided for by the American Rescue Plan. (We'll have more details on that later.)
Ready to start shopping for coverage? We can’t stress enough the importance of buying your health insurance plan through Freelancers Union. The policies we feature are available on the health insurance exchanges and cost the same as anyone else selling the same policy, but when you buy through us, you invest in our advocacy (like the Freelance Isn’t Free law), community building (through SPARK), and free education programs (through Freelancers Hub and this blog!).
Getting your health insurance through us means better health for you and a better future for all freelancers. Find coverage now, and if you have any questions, reach out to our member services team for one-on-one assistance.
