Health Insurance for Writers

Being self-employed means locating, and paying for, health insurance that's usually covered by an employer if you work elsewhere. Because of this, many people who choose to make the switch from a traditional 9-5 to a freelance position may find themselves in a bit of a quandary.

Luckily, there are resources for freelance writers to research affordable health insurance plans that will meet their needs. The article below links to an informative article with health insurance tips, resources, and more for a freelance writer (or anyone who is self-employed.) If you know of any additional resources, please let me know!

Health Insurance

I'm getting hammered by my monthly health insurance premiums. Fortunately, it is a big tax deduction but it certainly adds up!

It's true. Paying for your own health insurance when you've never had to do so in the past is a BIG change!

But budgeting for it effectively can lessen the blow -- as well as choosing the least expensive coverage that will fit your needs. It's a necessary evil, unfortunately.

But like you said, it helps with tax deductions!

I'm currently using a state-sponsored program for mental health benefits, but haven't dug deeply enough yet to find something for other health insurance. I need to do that.

P.S. This is Alicia from WritingSpark.com. I had to use my non-use blogger account to sign in here, haha. Would you be willing to change your settings so that others can respond?

Of course I can do that, Alicia.

Well, if changing the settings means more people will comment I'm all for it :)
