My husband has given notice at his main job, a large corporate-owned casino/ resteraunt, 20-miles away, in order to work full time at an independalty-owned local bakery, just 1 mile from our home and 1/2 block from the frame shop, and to be able to help out in the shop part-time. He has been working 7 days a week between the two places. Makes sense to stay where he's happier and closer to home, with the gas prices and all. Unfortunately, the one that he's leaving is where we have our medical/dental/vision insurance through, and the local one can't offer anything. What are you small business owners doing for coverage and how much are you paying for your premiums? It would be just me and him. I'm still facing two knee replacements, etc, and the thought of no coverage is freaking me out. Meadowbrook, through PPFA, has told me that they "are working on" a plan for health coverage, like the business coverage we now have, suited to small businesses with an affordable premium, but don't know when that will become available. A friend suggested going through AARP, of which we are members. I will check it out. Suggestions?
