Our Benefits Will Benefit You
We were first in the industry to provide healthcare to freelancers and pride ourselves in always offering the best healthcare plans at affordable costs.
For every hour a talent works, Aquent contributes to their weekly health insurance premiums. For talent working a 40 hour week, we cover 82% of the individual premium for the HMO style plan—our most popular plan option.
It’s another reason why the best talent choose to work with us—and our clients—for years.
