Health insurance
« on: Nov 30, 2018, 10:27 am »
I've been getting insurance through my parents for my whole life but starting in December I lose eligibility and I'm in the process of applying for some sort of subsidized insurance in my state. As a freelancer I really have no clue what I'll make. My monthly income has ranged from 500 dollars to almost 3000. Has anyone had to deal with this? How do you estimate income with that much variability?

The Actors Fund is the best resource for all things health insurance. Even tho I assume you are not yet union, they may be able to help you out. Give them a call.

We recently had to get a health insurance plan for my husband who has started his own company.  He's always worked for a company before and had insurance through them.  We used (no "m" at the end) to find an insurance plan that worked in terms of coverage and price.  You might check it out; it's anonymous.
