For entrepreneurs, finding good health coverage can be difficult. Here are the options for getting the best care.
As my role requires a lot of travel, both domestic and international, I've always needed a health plan that covered me while traveling outside of my home state. This year, however, all of those plans have disappeared from the individual and small group market.
I found myself in the same position that many small businesses face: Groups are based on the number of full-time employees on payroll, and contractors who you offer benefits to.
That's all well and good if your company offers healthcare as a benefit. But what if it doesn't?
Many small businesses don't meet the minimum threshold to offer group insurance, preferring to hire contractors instead of employees. That includes my company.
