  • Things to Keep In Mind When Getting a Short Term Health Insurance Quote

    Filed Under: Blogging
Are you considering short term health insurance because you are switching jobs, because you are out of work, because you are traveling, or for some other reason? If so, you’ve made a wise decision, and there are some things you will want to keep in mind when getting a quote for this type of coverage.

First of all, do you know how long you will need the coverage for? Some people buy short term plans because they have taken a new job which does not offer health coverage for a specific number of days. Those people then know they only need to buy their short term plan for that interval – 30 days, 60 days, 90 days, or whatever it may be.

Next, think about how much of a deductible you want to pay in the event you actually need to use your plan. If you are buying this insurance because you’re between jobs, then your budget is probably pretty tight. In that case, you may want a higher deductible, because opting for a higher deductible will keep your payments lower. Think about what fits best for your budget and choose accordingly.

Finally, think about who all will need to be covered under the plan. Do you need to cover your entire family, or do they have alternate means of insurance? Perhaps your spouse can opt into their insurance plan. Explore these options to make sure you get the right coverage for your needs. Short term health insurance offers policyholders a lot of flexibility, but it is still a good idea to know ahead of time what terms of coverage you will need.
