I don't have Health Insurance because I am in Between Jobs. Where do I get temporary coverage?
I would like to have a temporary solution to Health Insurance. I am in between jobs and feel very insecure in case I need medical assistance. As soon as I find a job problem solved.
A very cost effective solution is a short term plan but this does require medical underwriting. Minimum 30 days and up to 6 mos in most states. And there is also the open enrollment period for individual health plans. Outside the open enrollment there is also an SEP or special enrollment period which allows you to purchase coverage outside the open enrollment if you have a loss of coverage. Inside the exchange you may qualify for a subsidy.
There are time specifics for these so I suggest you contact a qualified health insurance agent to assist you. You will want to be sure your providers are in the network for the option you choose. More to consider than just the cost of the premium.
Did you have health insurance with your former job? How long since you left your former job? State Continuation or Cobra may be an answer. Short Term Medical may or may not be the answer; it depends on your medical history and if you are willing to pay the penalty for not having Minimum Essential health coverage. Your state exchange may be an answer. Again, it depends when your prior health insurance ended. You may or may not be eligible for a subsidy; only through your state or federal exchange is that possible but there are rules around when you can gain coverage. I would be happy to understand your situation better in order to make a recommendation that makes sense for you. Anne Taylor You can reach me on linked in.com/ AnneTaylorcincinnati/

As long as you are healthy, Short term plans are the way to go as they are less than half the cost of a regular plan. You can pay in advance up to 6 months and discount the rate by 35%! Otherwise you can pay month to month. Only drawback is they do not cover any pre-existing conditions so if you are concerned about any health issue coming back up you need to enroll in a regular plan.

Hi Julie - I would suggest a short-term major medical plan. They provide temporary health insurance from 1 - 6 months and they cover major medical / hospital care and some also cover out-patient and doctor office benefits. A local insurance agent should be able to help you and you can also find a plan online or if you need personal service, then I would be glad to help you. You may call me at 800.647.4589 or email me at adam@BestShorttermPlan.com. All the best- Adam
You can get a short term medical policy until you find employment.
