Short Term Health Insurance - Great for Many ScenariosFiled Under: Blogging
One great use of short term health insurance is when you have lost your job. Since most people rely on their jobs for their insurance, getting fired or laid off means you no longer have health coverage. And if you no longer have health coverage, then your family no longer has health coverage. That can create a lot of anxiety. thankfully you can avoid that with the affordable care that short term coverage provides.
Similarly, if you have quit your job and are going to a new job, you may find yourself without health coverage. Some employers have probationary periods during which new employees are not yet eligible for coverage. This could last from 30-90 days, depending on the employer's preference. This saves them from wasting money on employees who are not a good fit. For those finding themselves in a probationary period at a new employer, short term plans work quite well.
Finally, if you find yourself traveling abroad for a business trip or a vacation, then this type of insurance will come in handy too. Since different countries have different rules about medical care, you need protection that covers you regardless. Short term coverage can fit the bill, giving you peace of mind that illness and injury can affordably be treated.
