Freelancers Union

When one in every three workers in the United States is a freelancer, we can’t help but wonder how they get their insurance. Freelancers Union helps bridge the gap between the 42 million independent workers and the broken insurance system. Currently, Freelancers Union has more than 170,000 members and counting in all 50 states. Freelancers Union believes that “all workers should have the freedom to build meaningful, connected, and independent lives—backed by a system of mutual and public support.”

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation recognized the innovative advancement of Freelancers Union in 2012, and endowed them with a grant. The grant enables Freelancers Union to expand portable group rate insurance coverage to improve population health by changing health care delivery. Specifically, this grant has enabled Freelancers Union to expand its group purchasing health benefits program from New York into New Jersey and Georgia.
