Washington Self-Employed Health Insurance

Being self-employed doesn’t mean you have to go without insurance. Living in Washington means that there are quite a number of health insurance options available to you. 

One of the biggest concerns regarding health insurance is the monthly cost or premiums. Being self-employed that concern doubles as you have to pay for your own coverage. 

Thankfully, there are a number of benefits associated with purchasing self-employed insurance. 

Benefits of Self-Employed Health Insurance In Washington

  • Individuals that get self-employed insurance for themselves and their families are eligible for tax deductibility. This means they are able to deduct 100% of their premium.
  • Considering you would be paying the premium and receiving the benefits, you are eligible for high deductible and low cost comprehensive plans like PPOs.
  • Being self-employed also means that you can be eligible for a group plan. And being part of a group plan means that you can pay for insurance coverage using pre-tax dollars. This has the benefit of significantly reducing your contribution amount once the year ends.
  • If you are a small business owner, you might be eligible for tax credit, which can help reduce the cost of your employees’ premiums.

Who Is Eligible For Self-Employed Health Insurance In Washington?

You are eligible for self-employed health insurance if you have an income that is through a business that has no other employees with reported income at the end of the year.

It turns out that a small business is defined by the law as a business with a minimum of 2 and maximum of 50 full time workers. This definition means that a business run as a sole-proprietorship with a single employee or a partnership with no workers can still benefit from the self-employed/small business health insurance plans.

It doesn't matter if you are the only full time employee, or you have 50, you can benefit from this ensuring that you, your dependents and workers can be covered under a group health plan.
