Health insurance plan for Realtors - do you have coverage?

Managing Real Estate Broker with Fairmount Realtors

  I have been considering the group health insurance offered through my broker's office. As a part of Century 21, there is a group plan and I was wondering if anyone has it and what they think of it. Anyone here in New Jersey?  

I was also curious to know how many real estate agents pay for their own insurance, or are covered under a spouse or family plan, not through their job as a Realtor.

I did a search on Active Rain to see if there were prior discussions about health insurance for Realtors and found a few discussions. It seems we are a huge group overall throughout the country and NAR is trying to address this issue.

Thanks for any comments.

 Help me understand, "Why can't the NAR require State and local boards to offer a Group Health Plan?"

(Not sure if I linked this.)

 I appreciate this discussion, it's fundamental! 

I wonder how many real estate agents pay for their own insurance from their work as a realtor or are covered under a spouse or family plan. I thought maybe the NAR statistics may only ask if you have insurance, not if you have it from being a REALTOR. 

As several people noted sometimes both partners were self-employed, making health insurance family issues even greater, and they may even BOTH be REALTORS!
