IMPORTANT NOTICE ABOUT SHORT-TERM PLANS:
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.

Plans offer coverage for a variety of medical services like doctor office visits, emergency room care, hospital stays, surgery and more after a deductible is met.
Some plans offer doctor office copays for primary care and Urgent Care. Each plan also includes coinsurance, which is the portion an insured is required to pay after the deductible is met.
It is important to review the Plan Details and understand full services provided, coinsurance out-of-pocket maximums, exclusions and limitations.

Fixed benefit medical is health insurance without a deductible. Traditional health insurance makes you pay most medical expenses out-of-pocket until you reach a certain deductible amount. Fixed benefit medical has removed the deductible barrier. Instead, you get fixed cash benefits for doctor office visits, hospital stays, lab work and more. And by working with an added benefit of a patient advocate, you know exactly what services are going to cost before going to the doctor.

It is important to know short term medical health plans are not required to meet the essential standards of the Affordable Care Act, and in some states, the length of a policy might be limited according to state-specific rules. Pre-existing conditions are also not initially covered by short term health insurance, and companies are allowed to ask medical questions in order to qualify an individual for coverage.
In most states, pre-existing conditions diagnosed within the past 5 years are generally not covered under this plan. However, qualifying conditions you develop throughout the year while insured by a short-term plan could be covered. Certain exclusions apply. See plan details for more information
