Freelancers Union’s A New Model for Healthcare Infographic A new model to get the healthcare help you need
Freelancers Union put together a great infographic that sheds some light on the state of our current healthcare system and proposes a new, more cooperative healthcare model – one that we think artists, career creatives, and the self-employed will be especially interested in. It’s a model where people can get the healthcare help they need.
Five years ago, freelancers came together to build something great. By pooling our collective resources, we started a social-purpose insurance company whose profits went back to keeping freelancers healthy — not to shareholders.
Then after listening to the needs of those tens of thousands of freelancers, we built Freelancers Medical, a primary care practice in New York City.
This is the power of people coming together. When we do, we not only build things that help everyone, but also provide a model for how systems can work better in the future. We call this New Mutualism. We’re stronger together than we are alone.
This is exciting! Especially to see the emphasis on health coaching.
