Short Term Medical is an alternative for people who missed open enrollment or aren’t eligible for other health insurance.
This Plan Provides Limited Benefits.
Short Term Medical plans do not count as minimum essential coverage under the Affordable Care Act. This means they may not cover the same benefits as ACA major medical policies and may use medical underwriting to set rates and accept or deny applications. Short term policies typically do not cover preventive care and pre-existing medical conditions. For comprehensive benefits, consider a major medical plan, which are available during Open Enrollment in the fall.
Short Term Medical (STM) and Health Care Reform
Short-term, limited-duration (STM) plans are not subject to certain provisions of federal health care reform, including the provisions related to essential health benefits, lifetime limits, preventive care, guaranteed renewability, and pre-existing conditions. The pre-existing condition exclusion for short term medical plans will apply for all insureds, including those under the age of 19. Examples of the claims STM plans do not cover include most preventive care, maternity, mental health and treatment related to medical conditions enrollees had prior to the plan’s effective date. Because these plans are not guaranteed renewable, applicants may not be eligible for another short-term plan after the plan’s termination date; in addition, the pre-existing condition exclusion will apply to any conditions that arose during any prior short-term plans. Know your plan.
Short Term Medical and Supplemental Accident and Critical Illness Plans offer affordable coverage, but these types of policies typically depend on medical underwriting, meaning a plan can take your medical history into account when accepting an application and setting monthly premium rates. These plans also do not provide minimum essential coverage, which current major medical plans are required to offer under the Affordable Care Act.
