Reply to "If you are self-employed what do you do about health insurance?"

Patti, a Health Savings Account (HSA) is used in conjunction with a high deductible health insurance plan.  This is a short explanation at this site and for Wisconsin:  https://www.ehealthinsurance.c...nce/health-plans/hsa

The money put into the HSA is tax free and remains so if used for qualified medical expenses and purchases not covered by your regular health insurance plan ( some over the counter drugs, etc qualify!)

If you are on Medicare, there are no HSA available to use with Medicare or supplements that I am aware of, but not being an insurance expert, I would advise speaking with someone who is an expert to review your best options.
