Short Term Health Insurance
Looking for Short-Term Health Insurance?
Short-term health insurance plans provide you with coverage for a limited period of time. It might be an ideal option for those between jobs or waiting for their health insurance to start. Typically, they offer durations of 30 days to 12 months.
Purchasing short-term health insurance is not considered credible coverage for guaranteed issue health plans known as “HIPAA” plans. HIPAA plans are generally intended for people with pre-existing medical conditions who may have trouble getting health insurance otherwise.
Please consult your advisor about the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). They also do not cover pre-existing conditions. If you have a medical condition, you may want to explore whether you can extend your current coverage.
Employer-sponsored group plans may have extended coverage under a government-regulated option known as COBRA. If you have a serious medical condition, you should seriously consider this option.
