Chronicle tech reporter Tom Abate shares this tidbit:
Those going freelance for the first time in a while should check out MediaBistro.com, a New York-based web site that offers among other services a free job board for full-time and freelance gigs. Access to the job lists is free but requires registration.
MediaBistro recently added a new service but only for paid members of what it calls AvantGuild — access to a health plan. I have not priced the plan nor looked into its features (does it require an exam or exclude pre-existing conditions?). But for those wondering what comes after COBRA that could be a better option than trying to buy an individual policy.
