Self employed individuals and families make up a large percentage of the California individual health insurance market
They generally do not have group health insurance for various reason and need to provide for themselves.
Their concerns and focus when dealing with health insurance is also unique as we'll discuss since they are footing the bill for themselves.
Let's look at options available to self employed California and find the best value available.
Here's the bottom line.
Cost is king for self-employed and for a good reason.
For this reason, high deductible and more catastrophic health insurance has been the norm within this group.
IF we are not getting a tax credit (more on that later)...
The Bronze or Silver plans generally make the most sense unless we're really young (in which case, the premium difference isn't so high)
We can help you compare the different plan options to see where the "sweet spot" between premium and benefits will be.
The big deal for self-employed deals with potential tax credits.
It's easier for self-employed people to qualify for the tax credits since we're looking at the "net" business income
We can help you with this calculation. More detail on the tax credit piece here.

Since the ACA law went into effect, the differences in core benefits between Individual and Group coverage has largely gone away
The difference is in the networks
The problem is that the law also made it harder for self-employed (family businesses) to qualify for group coverage.
You now need a non-spouse on payroll.
That can be tough.
Each self-employed person's situation is different (leaving group coverage, family dependent coverage, etc) so please run your situation by us and we'll quickly size up the best approach.
This is supposed to 20% of the California labor market NOW!

Gig workers are largely self-employed and should take advantage of the same benefits mentioned above...specifically the tax credit piece if eligible.
