HEALTH INSURANCE FOR INDEPENDENT CONTRACTORS
As independent contractors, REALTORS® cannot enjoy the group rates offered to traditional employees, multiplying the impact of rising insurance costs. REALTORS® across the state are currently forgoing needed coverage because of extreme deductibles and other coverage limitations. Federal regulations now allow policies to cover independent contractors who are members of trade associations, but state law still prohibits them.
