Maxicare for FVA
Have you seen the viral video of Jay Shetty, an award-winning host, about how we should find our passion and pursue them? It went viral and one of the things he points out in his video is a famous line made by the Dalai Lama about humanity. The line says, “We sacrifice our health in order to get wealth, then we sacrifice our wealth in order to get back our health”.
With this in mind, one must be prepared in what is coming with the recent developments and lifestyle we are living. As freelancers, we don’t have a constant income and we risk our health in the workloads we are doing. So, we need to set aside something for our health and be prepared.
The sad thing about this is, not a lot of HMO companies are open for freelancers. Even if remote workers have the money, HMO companies won’t allow enrollment unless if it’s within a government-recognized company. Maybe because online jobs is a new things and nothing has been set so far. Or it’s just really a policy.
This is one of the reasons why FVA Consultancy took the necessary means to operate legally. So it can serve more… As a registered entity, our students, grads and employees can now own HMO for themselves and their dependents.
A health maintenance organization (HMO) is an organization that is best serving an individual or company with health care packages that will cover one’s need during a time of illness. This covers services of a physician, hospital care, and treatments.
