  • health insurance for freelancers?

    I have a sister who is single and is turning 23 this year and will soon be off her dad's insurance. She is currently a freelance graphic artist in NJ ... actually we both freelance individually but I never had to worry about health insurance because I was already married before I started freelancing so I know nothing about choosing one. My sister though is single and would like to help her find affordable health insurance but don't know where to start. I heard about joining some guilds like GAG might help get individuals group rates. She is in basically good health and doesn't smoke. Can somebody recommend a company, a guild, etc. that can help with affordable health insurance?

    Thanks in advance for the advise.

    I could be wrong, but doesn't the new healthcare law allow people to stay on their parents insurance until they're 25?

      Disclaimer: I have NO personal experience with these groups and their insurance plans.

      Freelancers Union
      Media Bistro
      AIGA
      GAG
      Fractured Atlas

      *Note: All have eligibility requirements. Not offered in all States.

      Also, check into getting an insurance agent; Met Life or similar. They can suggest options for your sisters specific self-employment and health circumstances, and help work out what's best.

      Hope this helps some.

        So if you have an AIGA membership, you could be allowed to join a group insurance rate? Does anyone else have experience with this? I'm looking into insurance for myself as well, but have no clue about this stuff.

          Which Font do you Think Works Best?
          CobraStrike
          Hello World,

          My Boss signed off and is asking the customer on the first design. But I am wondering which font looks better. 1, 2, or neither in your opinion and why?

          Thank you,...

          Dear JofDiamonds,

          I like the work that you have produced. 1. Negative - While I notice the varying line width of the image it might not be enough to really make the work stand out. With that...
