Most people are used to thinking about health insurance as something you get either through an employer (group plans) or something you buy on either the federal or state marketplace (individual plans).
Association plans are a hybrid of these two options, allowing individuals to join a group plan, which often means there are lower premiums.
Association Health Plans work by allowing small businesses, including self-employed workers, to band together by geography or industry to obtain healthcare coverage as if they were a single large employer.
If you currently live in Austin, TX, and are self-employed you can enroll in an Association Plan through Catch and our partner Decent. All plans offered through Decent are 100% ACA compliant and cover preventative services and all essential health benefits.
