If you’re an self-employed freelancer with no health insurance, you will probably want to read Colleen Doran’s rundown of resources to get insurance:
Here’s a great online resource for artists and other self employed people seeking health insurance. Just click on the map of your state, and a comprehensive listing of available organizations and insurance options will be made available to you. This goes for artists of all kinds, but also applies to low income families, the disabled, etc. Please bookmark this.
In the last week, I have read a number of creators and people in the industry posting ill-informed items about the lack of health insurance options for the self employed and for creators in particular. One woman flatly stated that the only reason she had never quit her job and started her own company was because she knew self employed people could not get insurance. This is simply false.
