Hi Friends, Newby here. I was talking to a friend of mine who sells individual to small business people who are contractors, construction laborers, tile setters, Carpenters, etc. Apparently these ppl only insurance options are those offered by Obama Care and if they don't enroll by the due date, they will be out of luck. I'm not sure if this idea is correct or not but he suggested that if someone becomes a member of an organization (non-profit contractors org, etc), they can become illegible for group health? QUESTION: Is the concept of being an independent contractor and joining "a membership or Association" a viable way to qualify for Group Health Benefits?
