Do you need health insurance for only a short time?
Do you or a family member identify with one of these situations? If so, then short term health insurance could be your solution for quick and affordable coverage.
- Between jobs
- Recent college grad
- Waiting on benefits at your new job
- Under age 65 and waiting on Medicare
- No longer covered under your parent’s plan
A short term health insurance plan is a flexible option with choices regarding length of coverage, deductible, coinsurance and maximum coverage amount. Typically, if you only need health insurance for a short period of time (usually less than 2-3 months), than this type of plan can help fill in the gap until you get a permanent plan. Whether you are waiting for major medical coverage, or looking for an affordable COBRA alternative, a temporary health insurance plan could be the right choice. Both individual and family plans are available.
