*** A response to Deborah Corey’s question about insurance for independents:

Hi, Ned —

Re Deborah Corey's inquiry on health insurance in the current JOTW, she may

want to check out mediabistro.com and freelancersunion.org, both of which

offer health insurance plans for self-employed communicators. I haven't

used either of these since I'm fortunate to be on my spouse's health plan,

but I have read case studies saying that the plans offered by these groups

are more cost-effective than trying to buy insurance on your own.

Deborah may also want to see if a local chamber of commerce or other

business group offers low-cost insurance to members. Here on Long Island,

for example, the Long Island Association (the largest business group) does

offer such a plan and it's not all that expensive for an independent

communicator to join the group. If I recall, at one point they were offering

access to the plan even without a full LIA membership.

A university alumni association might be another place to check for low-cost

insurance.

As always, I enjoy the newsletter. You provide a great service to

professionals in our field.

Best,

David
