Good health insurance solutions for freelancers?


Insurance, especially health insurance, is a tough subject for most freelance writers (all types of freelancers, actually) to face.

I’ve searched and found free insurance quotes both online and off line myself. But I’ve never found health insurance I can actually afford. Part of that is my health and my age. I’m relatively healthy, but I’m also quite overweight and I’m just a few years from qualifying for Medicare.

What about you other writers out there — any good insurance solutions you’ve found for freelance writers? How do you handle the problem? Group insurance from a “day job”? Health insurance provided through your spouse?

I’m sure many who come here would be interested in some examples of how various freelancers take care of health insurance needs. Leave us a comment and share your solutions.
