About this Episode:
One of my biggest concerns months ago, was how in the world would we be able to afford health insurance without it being like a mortgage payment in our monthly budget?
There was so much I'd heard about having health insurance when you're self-employed. And honestly, 90% of it was terrible. Most everything I heard had price points in the $700 - $1000 for a family. Yikes! Knowing we're a family of five, and today, everything is paid for through the employer, yes, paid for...it was kind of frightening and quite frankly disheartening to think, that this could be a show stopper to my full-time plan.
One day, I was listening to a podcast, and she talked indirectly about a co-op plan that she uses to this day for the healthcare for her family. Immediately, I had a spark of hope, that this may be the answer, and sure enough, it gave me immense comfort, as I'd stumbled upon a secret sauce that would meet the needs of the family and be super affordable.
