What is Short-Term Health Insurance?
Short-term health insurance is a type of health plan that offers you provisional medical coverage during a lapse in permanent coverage. You are eligible for a short-term health plan outside the enrolment period, when you change jobs, or when you lose employer-sponsored coverage. These short-term plans are not required to adhere to minimum essential coverage by the Affordable Care Act (ACA). They may offer coverage for doctor visits, emergency care, preventive care, and prescriptions. Short-term health insurance is more flexible as you don’t have to wait for a long time to change. These plans are affordable, and the process of obtaining the plan is short and fast. Short-term health insurance could be the best fit for your situation!
