short term plans

Gone are the days when Short Term plans were only for clients between jobs and early retirees waiting for Medicare eligibility. Short Term Medical has evolved into a product most anyone can use to bridge the gap to other coverage. Offering benefits for major medical events with an out-of-pocket maximum, Short Term insurance plans can serve as a budget-friendly insurance option.


These products are not qualifying health coverage (“Minimum Essential Coverage”) that satisfies the health coverage requirement of the Affordable Care Act. If you don't have Minimum Essential Coverage, you may owe an additional payment with your taxes. You may calculate any potential IRS penalty here: 

The termination or loss of this policy does not entitle you to a special enrollment period to purchase a health benefit plan that qualifies as minimum essential coverage outside of an open enrollment period. These products may include a pre-existing condition exclusion provision.
