  • As Unemployment Rate Stays High, More People Turn to Short Term Health Insurance

    Filed Under: Blogging
Two of the hottest topics in U.S. politics continue to be unemployment and healthcare. With the unemployment rate hovering around 10% for much of the past 2 years, and most U.S. Workers relying on jobs to provide their health insurance, the need for alternative solutions like short term health insurance is greater than ever.

For most Americans, healthcare is purchased through a group health plan provided by their employer. So when someone loses their job, he or she loses their healthcare benefits as well. This can be a devastating loss for individuals and families alike. Thankfully, short term health insurance exists to help out in these situations.

Short term health insurance provides affordable insurance to people who do not have jobs. The insurance itself is of comparable quality to that you would receive from a group provider, so you will not have to worry that your family will receive anything less than the best treatment.

And since your employment situation can pick up at any time, you only have to buy short term coverage for the length of time you actually need it. So if you only need coverage for a month, you can buy it for a month. This way, you are not stuck paying for a group plan and a short term plan if you are able to quickly find work. This is another reason short term care makes so much sense for unemployed people.
