Temporary or Short-Term Plans

Page 1Temporary Health Insurance or Short-Term Medical also falls under the individual plan category. This type of plan is major medical, and can be obtained for up to 6 months, on a month-to-month basis, and can be renewed for up to another 6 months (for a year total).

It is suited for people who are between jobs and are anticipating coming on to a new employer’s group plan, or people who are temporary or seasonal employees, or people who are recent graduates. With this type of plan, premiums are often lower than a permanent plan, and coverage can often start as early as the next day!
