Freelancers Union is important for health insurance now, but what after health insurance reform?


Today, Monday Nov. 23, the Washington Post runs a column “America’s next great pundit”, which invites a vote today, and the column by Zeba Khan “A blow to the self-employed” is very relevant to IT freelancers (such as web developers and tech writers), link here.

She discusses Freelancers Union (link) , which if you look at the web page right now, shows an open enrollment for its health insurance. But Khan reports that the bills for health insurance reform (especially the House) would deny the ability of groups like Freelancers Union from negotiating within the health insurance exchanges. I don’t get the point of denying them the ability to participate.
