Having health insurance isn't an option.
The biggest risk when going it on your own in the job market is benefits. If you’re like most self-employed or contract workers, you keep the overhead low by skimping on the employee benefits. When you’re the only employee, that’s just bad business.
The Health Insurance Marketplace is open for business. Starting today, you can apply for new 2018 health insurance — or you can renew, change or update your current health plan for 2018.
Open enrollment for the state’s My Arkansas Insurance Individual Marketplace will begin on November 1. The program provides health insurance plans for Arkansas individuals and families.
Effective September 1, 2017, access to existing SHOP enrollment and account management portals will no longer be available and Arkansas SHOP will begin transitioning existing SHOP account holders to direct relationships with their coverage provider – Arkansas Blue Cross & Blue Shield and BESTLife Dental.
