Make a Smooth Transition to Your New Job with Temporary Health InsuranceFiled Under: Blogging
Many employers require new hires to wait through a probationary period before they are eligible for insurance. These probationary terms can vary in length from 30 days to 120 days. So you may start your job in January and not be eligible to receive medical insurance benefits until April or May.
While this can seem somewhat cruel, there is actually logic behind it. It costs a lot of money for companies to add employees to their group insurance plan. What happens if you turn out to be the wrong fit for the organization? Then the company has wasted insurance money on you.
Because this is a common occurrence in the workplace, it is important to understand the benefits of temporary health insurance. This type of insurance will allow you to maintain a high level of medical coverage without paying the high premiums required by COBRA. So you can keep your family protected and avoid the fear of living life uninsured.
