What Does Temporary Health Insurance Cover?
Temporary, or short-term health insurance, can be used to protect you and your financial well-being from the medical costs incurred from an unexpected accident or illness, or while you wait for other coverage to begin. It can be used to cover the following:
- Emergency care
- Office visits
- Prescription medications
- Medical, surgical, and hospital services (inpatient and outpatient)
- Diagnostic services
- Physical, occupational and speech therapy
Short term health insurance is useful for those times when you aren't ready or able to commit to a long-term plan:
- You're experiencing a gap in employer coverage or waiting for employer coverage to begin.
- You can't afford COBRA benefits.
- You've recently graduated and are searching for a position that offers insurance benefits.
- You are 64 years old and about to retire, but you are not yet eligible for Medicare.
