Next Day Coverage in Minutes! Is Short Term Medical Right for You?
People lose health insurance every day. The reality is people also get sick or injured every day. Since we cannot predict the future, it is wise to maintain health insurance for the unexpected, and fortunately Short Term Medical plans can begin as soon as tomorrow! But are Short Term Medical plans right for you?
Does it matter when or how I lost my insurance to apply for Short Term Medical?
It does not! There are many reasons why someone might lose their health insurance and sometimes we don’t even realize it. Here are common situations that occur resulting in a gap of health insurance:
leaving an employer who provides health benefits
waiting for a new employer to begin insurance (often 30 – 90 day waiting periods)
turning age 26 and being removed from a parent’s plan
graduating from college
waiting period for a Qualified Health Plan to begin
temporary or seasonal employees between assignments
missed last year’s Open Enrollment Period
You can apply at anytime for a Short Term Medical plan regardless of when or how you lost your health insurance.
Ok, I understand I can apply for Short Term Medical at anytime, but is it right for me?
To identify if Short Term Medical is right for you, ask yourself this – do I need insurance for past or current health conditions, or do I need insurance just in case something unexpected comes up? Those who are fairly healthy and need insurance for the unexpected will most likely find Short Term Medical as a great solution.
