***STUDY HALL PARTNERSHIP: TRUPO INSURANCE***

Slip on ice and sprain your wrist? You should be able to rest up, not struggle to file all your drafts when you can barely move your hand. Here’s where Trupo comes in. For monthly rates as low as $19 for our accident insurance, our plans help cover things like ER visits, X-rays, and PT, but you can also just use the extra money to pay your rent (whatever makes your life a little easier.) We also have dental plans, because we believe self-employment shouldn’t mean you’re on your own. Check out our rates here.

All sponsor funding goes toward commissioning new content for members. Email [email protected] for rates.
