Short Term health insurance, sometimes called Term health insurance or Temporary health insurance, is designed to bridge gaps in your health care coverage during times of transition.1
A Short Term plan may be just the right health insurance solution if you:
of health care professionals, with 1 million physicians and other health care professionals and approximately 6,000 hospitals and other facilities.2
if you have to see a specialist—making it easier to receive the care you need.
Check out other insurance plans such as dental, vision and term life to address almost any insurance need you may have.
1 Short term plans are medically underwritten. This coverage is not required to comply with certain federal market requirements for health insurance, principally those contained in the Affordable Care Act. Be sure to check your policy/certificate carefully to make sure you are aware of any exclusions or limitations regarding coverage of preexisting conditions or health benefits (such as hospitalization, emergency services, maternity care, preventive care, prescription drugs, and mental health and substance use disorder services). Your policy/certificate might also have lifetime and/or annual dollar limits on health benefits. If this coverage expires or you lose eligibility for this coverage, you might have to wait until an open enrollment period to get other health insurance coverage. This is not Minimum Essential coverage as defined in the Affordable Care Act and may not cover all Essential Health Benefits in your state. Some Short Term plans are available as association group insurance only to members of FACT, an independent association. Additional membership fees may be required.
