Short Term Health Insurance may be for you if you are looking for a major medical health insurance plan, but do not want or can’t afford an Obamacare (ACA) plan. Short Term Health Insurance plans typically last less than a year (varying by state) and offer the core benefits expected of a traditional health plan. With Short Term Health Insurance plans you will often see a much lower premium than Obamacare, but they do not include all of the ten “essential health benefits” associated with ACA plans. Also, eligibility of coverage is based on underwriting questions.
