Many people leaving permanent employment have had the benefit of private medical insurance (health insurance) offered as part of their remuneration package.
However, as a contractor it is down to you to provide your own health insurance cover.
Health insurance puts you in control of when and where you are treated, which could mean less time away from valuable contracts and income.
