This Memorial Day, we take time to remember and honor the brave people who have served our country.
Memorial Day is not only a day of remembrance but also an opportunity to reflect on the challenges veterans face, including access to affordable healthcare. The physical and mental toll of military service can linger long after their active duty ends, and veterans should not be burdened with exorbitant medical expenses or lack of coverage.
While many veterans receive healthcare benefits through the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), there remains a significant gap for those who work as 1099 contractors or self-employed individuals. Addressing this gap is crucial to ensure that all veterans, regardless of their employment status, have access to the healthcare they need and deserve.
Many veterans choose to pursue 1099 independent contractor work after their military service, enjoying the flexibility and autonomy it offers. However, this self-employment status often means they do not have access to employer-sponsored healthcare plans. Without the stability of a traditional job, many 1099 veterans find themselves without affordable healthcare options, leaving them vulnerable and at risk.
Access to affordable healthcare is a fundamental right that should extend to all members of society, including veterans who are 1099 workers.
