Self-Employed? ObamaCare Has You Covered

Jason: Affordable Care For The Self-Employed

The day I finally got affordable health insurance, I practically ran through the streets yelling the good news. I wanted everyone in Atlanta to know that I was covered. Up until that moment, having insurance had been a constant uphill battle. My struggle to find affordable care began in 2012. I underwent an MRI and the results showed an anomaly in my brain. Following the procedure, I went through a bunch of tests to determine whether it was malignant. Thankfully, doctors assured me that it was benign, and I thought the worst was over. But the MRI results began to follow me. Health insurance companies didn’t care that it was benign—they used it as a reason to deny me coverage.

That’s why I signed up for health insurance through the new marketplace as soon as I possibly could, not only for my peace of mind, but for the good of my business. I chose a gold plan with a $2,500 deductible. It was an incredible feeling that, months later, still hasn’t gone away. I feel like being self-employed no longer means having to fend for myself. Since I got affordable care, my business has grown. I’ve been able to use the savings on my health insurance to hire part-time analysts and assistants to help. As a self-employed person, I feel like I’m finally on a level playing field with my friends who work at large companies with good health care plans.
