I’m covered by my parents’ insurance plan until I’m 25, but am pursuing a freelance career that doesn’t guarantee many insurance options. What should I do when I hit 25 or is there anything I should do now?

26 is the actual age. So congrats! You don’t have to deal with this problem for another year!

A month before you turn 26, go on the health insurance marketplace. Enter in your deets and see what price you’ll have to pay. You’ll need to learn lots of insurance lingo to make an informed decision. But overall, it’s a fairly chill process. I did it a few months ago when I turned 26.

Musicians may be able to get insurance through their union as well.

Many freelancers purchase health insurance on the exchange or you can look at something called a healthcare sharing ministry, which is popular among freelancers. I would definitely expect this to be a significant part of your monthly budget so do your research now to get quotes and budget accordingly.
