Qwick freelancers are no strangers to taking care of others. (We’ve seen you raking in those 5-star shifts!) However, it’s important not to forget to take care of yourself among the hustle of work and life. Staying healthy is crucial for your overall well-being, and health insurance is important to ensure you and your family can get care when you need it without breaking the bank.
As most of us know, you can’t always anticipate the curve balls life throws at you. A recent survey found that 39% of Qwick freelancers had an emergency financial event occur in the last year, including unexpected medical bills. Unfortunately, even healthy individuals can be met with unplanned medical needs and the bills that stack up as a result.
Luckily, health insurance can be a safety net for you and your family. With just a little pre-planning you can avoid an accident or emergency taking an undue toll on your finances. Health insurance is great, but finding the right insurance plan for you can be a daunting task, especially as a 1099 contractor. That’s why we’re happy to connect you with partners who can help you find the right health insurance plan for you, from traditional insurance to healthshares, and answer all of your questions along the way.
