Affordable Healthcare for Owner Operators

Posted on 6/17/2016 by in Industry News

As an owner operator, you not only deal with the driving aspects of the job, but you are also in charge of all the business aspects as well. It’s no longer just about driving; it’s about thinking like a businessperson and making decisions that will hopefully yield more profit for yourself. It’s also important to make sure that you are taking care of yourself and your family, which means having adequate health coverage.

There’s no denying that the life of a truck driver is a different lifestyle. It’s a demanding career that can take a toll on your health. Often times, drivers place their health at the bottom of the priority list. Many drivers do not take the time to go to the doctor because they feel it will take too much time away from driving, which in turn will lower their pay; or they have forgone a health insurance policy altogether claiming that it is just too expensive. The results of this can be scary, and it only continues to add to the growing health problems for the industry as a whole.

We want to see our drivers stop putting their own well-being and health on the back burner and make sure they have access to affordable healthcare. That’s why FTS Plus+ partnered with Independent Truckers Group. ITG offers high quality, guaranteed issue benefits, at the lowest cost in the industry. Keep your health a priority with plans designed exclusively for trucking professionals.
