Short-Term Medical Insurance Plans
Short-term medical plans play a critical role in our post ACA major medical world. Short -term medical plans are vital to “fill a time gap” before your client can be covered by an ACA plan. Plus many may choose to opt out of an ACA plan simply because they can’t afford the high premiums, high deductibles, and the big out-of-pocket financial exposure at claim time. After all what good is major medical plan if a person can’t afford it?
Another market for short-term are those legal residents who don’t have a social security number yet but need an affordable medical plan. Some of our short-term plans don’t even ask for a social security number so these plans are a perfect answer to these types of clients.
Talk about an innovative short-term plan!!!!! Two choices. 1) In most approved states you can now insure someone up to a full 364 days at far less premium than an ACA plan. Plus, there is no longer a penalty for not buying an ACA plan. 2) For even less premium apply for our unique 4X3 option. Your clients can have short-term protection up to 360 days (not 364) and will only have to complete one application and answer the health questions only once. Four 90-day policies are issued all at one time with pre-existing carryover from 90-day term to 90-day term. Rates do not increase from 90-day term to 90-day term. Naturally, a new deductible and co-insurance is applied each 90 days. Plus, they can cancel anytime. Please contact us for details. *Plan not available in all states.
US citizens and US legal residents between the ages of 6 months (when insuring children by themselves) and 64-year-old. You must be able to answer a few brief health questions “no” in order to qualify. But once you qualify no other health questions are necessary.
