Independent work is on the rise, and for good reason. Being your own boss can give you better working conditions, flexible hours, and higher income potential. But despite these advantages, independent work does involve some trade-offs.
In most states, leaving a traditional, full-time job means leaving the guarantee of subsidized health insurance coverage sponsored by the employer for the uncertainty of the non-group health insurance marketplace. For independent business owners, finding the right insurance program and affordable care can be a daunting task. That’s why at Openforce, we make it a priority to offer meaningful benefits to our members—including beneficial and competitive health insurance options.
We are pleased to announce two new voluntary insurance programs offered through a partnership with Aflac.
Today, Openforce members can enroll in:
- Cancer Indemnity Benefits
- Critical Care and Recovery Insurance
These new products are designed to help protect independent contractors against unforeseen costs associated with medical issues and lost wages. The new policies help provide financial protection in the event of:
- Heart Attack
- End Stage Renal Failure
- Coronary Bypass Surgery
- Organ Transplants
- Cancer, and more…

We recognize there is much work to be done on issues such as benefits, access to credit, and training and credentials for independent contractors, to name a few. Some of these may call for policy changes; others are being solved by technology innovators and integrators like Openforce. We believe providing solutions for tackling these challenges make independent work not only a more feasible option, but a successful one with one less worry for independent business owners in the gig economy.
