Getting Affordable Self-employed Health Insurance

There are a lot of websites that offer health insurance plans for all types of situations. Whether you need single coverage or have a family to protect, the right plan is out there. When making your selection, you should have the following information about each plan you're considering. In fact, it's a good idea to list the plans' benefits and costs in columns so that your comparison will be as comprehensive as possible.

  • How long has this company been providing health insurance coverage?
  • How many self-employed customers does this company have?
  • What is the monthly premium for the plan I like?
  • What is the annual deductible for the plan I like? Do I have a choice of deductibles?
  • Is the plan I like part of a provider group so that I am paying less for medical visits?
  • What is my maximum out-of-pocket cost per year?
  • What is the term of the policy? How long is my commitment? Is the policy renewable?
  • Does this plan have options such as dental care, eye care, and long-term health care?
  • What kind of response did I get when I called their customer service line to ask questions? Is their customer service available 24/7?

If you have checked out several plans and asked the above questions for all of them, you will be able to make the best possible decision on your self-employed health insurance.
