Freelancers Union

The Freelancers Union offers group rate insurance plans to self employed / freelance workers. They recently changed their health linsurance plan provider from HIP to Empire BlueCross BlueShield. Click here to read about why they made the switch.

By buying into a group plan, the rates are so much more affordable than what an individual would be able to get on their own. For example Empire's rate for an individual buying their own coverage in their POS plan is $1398.42/ month, while through the Freelancers Union the same plan is only $382.63/month. Wow! This is a great option for all you self employed photographers out there!

Thanks for posting this. This is valuable information. I did not know that they had switched -- that is very good news! I think this just shows you that change is perhaps the most possible from the bottom up :)
