We came across a program that is not traditional health insurance, but reduced my son's surgical costs from $8,000 to $1,250. It costs $54.95 a month for the family and includes dental, vision, RX, doctors, hospitals, etc. If you like more info, drop me a line at email@example.com or post here.

A little suggestion. "IF" anyone is a veteren either of any branch of service whether active or national guard,reserves,etc. You are entitled to obtain health services thru the Veterens Adminstration. Physicals costs run from 7.00 to 75.00 and meds (all) 2.00 to 7.00) have been some minor changes but not much. still the cheapest deal and if a veteren a benefit that we all deserve. All you have to do is call and fill out the application. check it out, might save some money, if you are not near a VA hospital, you use your card and the VA and the hospital haggle out the charges.

I've been with the National Association for the Self Employed for the last 4 years. You are able to customize your coverage for you as an individual and get the benefit of a large group rate. In comparison, other than limitations on regular visits, they have served me well. NASE Member services 1 800 232 6273 / web 222.nase.org. The coverage I have with them is through The MEGA LIFE & HEALTH INS. CO.

I just did a bunch of research on health insurance lately and found some really interesting information on Medical Savings Accounts which are geared towards self-employed individuals. One site I found that was helpful was www.firstmsa.com . Unfortunaltely I can't speak from experience but they seem to offer some great tax advantages along with providing basic medical coverage.

What is everyone doing about health insurance? Seems difficult for the self employed. Do any of the cat companies offer group health?
