Short Term Health Insurance

Affordable Health Insurance To Help Fill In The Gap

Short Term Health Insurance

Short-term health insurance provides coverage for a limited period, now between 30 days and 36 months. Select insurance providers such as Golden Rule Insurance Company may offer a short-term plan that offers coverage for up to a year. Rather than being a long-term insurance solution, short-term plans can offer protection in times when you need it most.   That truly is what health insurance is about.

When exactly is short-term medical insurance coverage a good idea? Healthy individuals might benefit from a short-term health plan that provides coverage at lower premiums if they are between plans. Or, if you’re unable to apply for the Affordable Care Act because the Open Enrollment deadline passed, a short-term plan could work for you. 

Think of short-term health insurance as a sort of major medical insurance. Major Medical Plans do not cover essential health benefits, or mental health, offer limited prescription drugs, and no maternity care. Just a reminder this is temporary health insurance and pre-existing conditions are not covered. Short-term health insurance does not provide minimum essential coverage nor is it found on the health insurance marketplace. If you have pre-existing conditions we advise you to have an affordable care act plan or an ACA health plan.
