As an independent contractor, it’s important to have health insurance. Many people don’t realize that being self-employed means you’re not covered by your employer’s health insurance plan. This can leave you vulnerable if something happens and you don’t have any health insurance of your own.
Here’s why health insurance is so important for independent contractors, and how an insurance agency can help you get the best health insurance for your needs.
There are so many reasons health insurance is important. Here are some of the biggest reasons:
Imagine this: You get injured on the job. You have to go to the hospital and have surgery. The total bill comes to $50,000. If you don’t have health insurance, that’s a bill you’re going to have to pay entirely on your own. It’s not uncommon for people without health insurance to be bankrupted by medical bills.
One of the biggest reasons to have health insurance is that it allows you to get preventative care. This means you can go to the doctor for regular check-ups and screenings, which can help catch problems early on before they become more serious (and more expensive to treat).
If you have any pre-existing conditions, it’s even more important to have health insurance. A pre-existing condition is any condition you have before you get health insurance. Many insurance companies will not cover people with pre-existing conditions, or they will charge much higher rates. This means if you have a pre-existing condition, you should work with an insurance agency that can get you the best coverage for the best price.
Maybe most importantly, having health insurance gives you peace of mind. If something happens, you know you’re covered. It’s one less thing to worry about in an already stressful world where unforeseen medical emergencies or accidents can happen at any time.
Your work is your livelihood. If you’re an independent contractor, that means your health is directly tied to your ability to work. This makes health insurance even more important for you. If something happens and you can’t work, having health insurance can help make sure you’re still able to pay your bills and support yourself or your family.
Working with an insurance agency is the best way to find the right health insurance plan for your needs. An insurance agent will be able to help you compare different plans and find the one that offers the most coverage for the lowest price. They will also be there to help you if you have any questions or need assistance filing a claim.
