Short-Term Health Insurance Overview

Short-term health insurance can be a great option today for many different reasons. The name itself in our opinion is somewhat misleading. You can purchase a short-term health insurance plan for up 360 days. In most cases when the 360-day term is up, you have the option to renew the policy. For this reason, short-term health plans have become many of our primary health insurance. 

One of the most compelling reasons to buy a short-term health insurance plan is because of the price. In many cases, the cost can be significantly lower than a fully insured plan. However, to qualify for a short-term health plan, you must undergo underwriting. If you have any major medical issues a fully insured plan would be the better option. Also, short-term health plans do not have prescription drug coverage until you meet the deductible in most cases. The savings from a short-term health plan can often outweigh this cost. Lastly, short-term health plans can have a cap of up to $2 million.
