Catch:

Why did you become a freelancer? Was it for freedom? Flexibility? It probably wasn't because you wanted to manage your own health insurance, taxes, and retirement. Did you know Catch can do all of that for you? Catch offers benefits and personal payroll for the self-employed.

With Catch, you can shop for health insurance the same way you shop for a flight. Compare across carriers. Find the best price. Catch makes it easy to renew your current plan, find a better one, or enroll for the first time. Even better, all plans are ACA compliant and Catch works on your behalf to get you tax credits that can save hundreds of dollars on your monthly premium.

Open enrollment started on November 1, 2022. To get covered for 2023, go to catch.co/health to renew your coverage or find a better plan.
