Understanding Health Insurance

Our guide takes about an hour to read through. Read and share with friends.

I'm Allan, a co-founder of LessAccounting.com. A few months ago I finally stopped procrastinating and decided to learn the ins and outs of buying health insurance. I wanted to make choosing a health insurance plan less scary for others, so I wrote some articles to share what I learned. These articles are short and easy-to-understand. I may have even injected a bit of fun into an otherwise super UNfun task. Enjoy and share this information with your friends!
