Health Insurance for the Self Employed

Are you self-employed? Welcome to the world of entrepreneurs! This is one of the fastest growing areas of today's job market.

While it has advantages to be your own boss, it also has disadvantages. One of those disadvantages can be trying to negotiate individual policies for your health and dental coverage.

pare, save and apply online. Quick quotes from multiple carriers. healthprices.com Breaking Healthcare News! National healthcare discount plan available now for under $3 a day americans4healthcare.net
