If You’re New to The United States as a Citizen What Can Help Protect You From Medical Debt?
If you are a new citizen to the United States or just arrived and you are wondering about what you can do to protect yourself in case of a medical emergency. Even if you only need to see a doctor for any reason then this is the blog for you. This blog is going to talk about the differences between short term health insurance and full health insurance as an individual plan and not through your employer.
Short term health insurance may be the answer for you instead of opting for a regular individual health insurance plan until you obtain a paid position that offers you a more reasonable package on health insurance. Short term health insurance offers you the same benefits as a regular health insurance package. It also tends to be cheaper in price than a regular package of health insurance benefits. Lastly, it is more flexible on how long you want or need your health insurance plan. This means that you can choose when to start and when to end your plans at your own choosing as long as it is in a monthly time frame. That is mostly to avoid being charged for the extra month when you may not need the short term health insurance any longer.
Regular health insurance can range in price from anywhere from 100 to 500 USD or more per month. So why pay the extra money when you are only looking for a short term solution until you find a place of employment that will give you benefits. The U.S. law will make it mandatory for all employers who offer full time positions to offer health insurance to their employees. Therefore, enabling you to get short term health and then finding that right job making sure all your healthcare needs are now met.
