Congratulate Me: My Individual Health Insurance Just Kicked In

I feel complete.

Being “self-employed” is quite a new thing for me.  Key milestone #1: Purchasing my own individual health and dental plan.

Curious about it yourself in California?  I use Kaiser (and have in the past).  I’m no expert but word on the street is that Kaiser is good at supporting preventive medicine (especially for fortunate folks like me who are in relative good health).

Other options that my freelancing-type friends have used include Blue Shield type individual plans.   There is also a UNION for freelancers! It looks like it has been around for a while.  Unfortunately for me, they seem more New York-centric (with no group insurance deal for a Southern California yours truly).

In lieu of a national healthcare system like other “civilized,” “first-world”countries, getting a little something like this is really the only other option.
