We work diligently with our partner Cigna to craft an industry-leading healthcare plan that minimizes out-of-pocket costs for our talent.
We were first in the industry to provide healthcare to freelancers and pride ourselves in always offering the best healthcare plans at affordable costs.
We pay $2.70 towards our talent's healthcare premium for every hour they work. For a talent working a 40-hour week, that covers a full 89% of their weekly premium cost! By comparison, the the average employer pays 70% of an employee’s premium, and the Affordable Care Act requires employers pay only 50%.
It’s another reason why the best talent choose to work with us—and our clients—for years.
