Freelancers Union Starts Health Insurance Company
Frustrated with rising premiums, the Freelancers Union, a charity that has long provided health coverage to self-employed workers, is creating its own health-insurance company with $17-million contributed from a group of philanthropies including the Rockefeller Foundation, New York State Health Foundation, and the Pioneer Portfolio of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, reports The Wall Street Journal.

The company, Freelancers Insurance, will craft plans around members’ feedback and outsource each part of the plan administration to the most efficient bidder, says Sara Horowitz, executive director of the Freelancers Union.
