Phoenix, Arizona — indipop, the first curated healthshare marketplace in the country, is experiencing a groundswell of interest in leveraging healthshares among the self-employed.
More than 24 million people left their jobs between April and September of this year, and industry data shows an additional 4.2 million resigned in October. While the nation scrambles to understand the future of work, these divergent workers are landing on their feet. In part because of innovative options previously unavailable to workers.
Founder & CEO Melissa Blatt left the corporate world ahead of the great resignation at age 47 and she discovered a lack of healthcare coverage for entrepreneurs, contractors, & freelancers. Aiming to make a difference, she created indipop to curate better healthcare options for the self-employed.
Fast-forward to 2021 and thousands of people left the traditional workforce just like her. In the meantime, she has created the solution they need to get healthcare simply and affordably so they can focus on their hustle instead of health insurance.
“Every day I’m talking to more and more professionals who left their jobs to go out on their own. Previously the limited healthcare options for self-employed workers prevented people from pursuing their own path, but with indipop they’re able to go out on their own as a freelancer, contractor or start their own business without going broke paying for healthcare. It’s so rewarding to be able to help people pursue their passion or dreams.” –Melissa Blatt
With open enrollment for the marketplace ending December 15th, the new segment of workers that left in The Great Resignation are flocking to indipop because of their innovative approach to obtaining a healthcare plan, including month to month plans without open enrollment periods. From hospital stays to telehealth to vision & dental care, indipop curates and vets the best possible healthshares to ensure a high quality of care at unprecedented prices.
