One thing that I’ve been looking into recently is health insurance. Being over the age of 26, I can’t piggyback on my parents’ health insurance plan. Having most recently worked outside of the U.S., I can’t use the COBRA plan to extend previous health insurance plans.
When you are self-employed, you have a few options. You can
- Remain uninsured
- Find insurance through employment
- Find insurance through your state or the federal program if you have a pre-existing condition
- Buy your own insurance
