What is short term health insurance?

Short term health insurance is an affordable option that helps provide temporary medical insurance coverage through any transition period when you find yourself without major medical health insurance. You choose the length of coverage, from 90 to 364 days, depending on your state of residence, what deductible amount you wish to have, and how you would like to pay, either monthly or in one lump sum (pre-payment is typically reserved for coverage of 90-days or less). This type of temporary health insurance plan is not considered an Obamacare plan, meaning it doesn’t meet all of the requirements of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), but due to new administration rules, you will not be subject to a tax penalty if you do not carry an ACA plan.
