My husband and I have been self employed for going on six years. Four of those years we were uninsured.
Not having health insurance was nerve racking, but we kept ourselves healthy through exercise and healthy eating. We later purchased a high deductible plan which means basic care isn’t included, but at least you won’t have the foot the whole bill for major medical issues.
Now, due to the Affordable Care Act, we have a great plan that a) is affordable and b) provides coverage for routine checkups and major medical issues.

Now, providers like United Health Care, have videos that make it easy for anyone to understand their options. The video Questions to Ask When Choosing Health Insurance is great at breaking down the basics.
This year I feel so much more confident in the health insurance shopping process.
If you have questions, I can try to answer them or point you in the direction to find the answers you need.
