Insurance Plans

People working on their own may have difficulty affording insurance. Most self-employed workers are able to deduct their health insurance premiums from their Federal taxable income, providing them with tax savings. Most states also offer similar tax preferences. The following websites may offer places to start in finding information about coverage, affordability and proposed changes.
