choosing individual health insurance Wisconsin

For many Americans, health insurance is taken for granted. In our country and in our state of Wisconsin, we have a long history of tying health insurance into compensation packages for employment. In fact, some people may make the decision of which job to take based, in part, on the benefits package and the healthcare insurance being offered. The thinking goes, for many, “As long as I have a job, my family and I will be insured.”

With the advent of the Affordable Care Act, the link between employment and health insurance has become even stronger. Previous to its passage, health insurance was just a “perk” of the job. Now, it’s required by federal law in many cases. Even some who had previously been considered “part-time” employees by their employers are now legally entitled to be covered.

But with all the talk about insurance as it relates to employment, it’s easy for those with traditional employment to forget that there are thousands and thousands of people all over southeastern Wisconsin who aren’t covered though their work. If you are one such person, we’re sure your well aware!

Whether you’re a part-time employee, self-employed, an individual contractor, work for a small company exempt from the health insurance requirements, or for a whole variety of other reasons, you may find yourself needing a healthcare solution for you and your family.
