Please note that the response to these questions is from Agilehealthinsurance and not the insurer.

Does a short term health insurance plan help cover the costs of prescription drugs?

The coverage varies depending on the plan. Please reference the brochure for more details.

Can I contact someone if I need help choosing the right short term plan?

Absolutely. Our friendly, licensed Product Advisors are ready to assist you.

Call (800) 314-5594

Do you offer the best prices for a short-term health insurance plan?

Whether you buy directly from golden rule, online or on the phone, or through agilehealthinsurance.com, you’ll pay the same premium for the plan. This means that you can enjoy the benefits and convenience of shopping and purchasing your short term health insurance plan right here online and rest assured that you’re getting the best available price for the particular plan.

What if I get a renewable insurance policy at a future date?

Once you receive written confirmation that you are approved for a renewable insurance plan, contact us to cancel the short term plan.

If I cancel my short term plan early is there a penalty or a refund?

After the first month, there is no penalty for cancelling your plan early. You’ll receive a prorated refund for the unused days of coverage. Remember, you must apply for at least one month of coverage, and there are no refunds during the first month.

Do short term health insurance plans include dental and vision benefits?

No. We offer dental insurance and vision insurance which you can purchase separately from a temporary insurance plan. Short term health insurance plans by themselves are designed to protect you in the event of an unexpected illness or injury and are not intended to cover dental and vision care.

If I apply for an insurance plan, am I obligated to buy?

No. You are under no obligation to buy a health insurance plan when using our site. After submitting your application you may cancel it at anytime during the underwriting process.

Golden Rule does charge a nonrefundable $20 application fee for their short-term plans in most states.

If I don’t qualify for short term coverage, will my credit card still get charged?

In most states there is a $20 nonrefundable application fee associated with the Golden Rule short term products.

How will I know if I qualify for short term health insurance coverage?

If applying online, normally you’ll have an answer the next business day. Golden Rule contact you via email.

Answering “yes” to any of the online application’s medical history questions can lengthen the review process. If this applies to you, please submit a paper application.

How soon can my short term health insurance start?

Your policy can take effect on the later of: (1) the requested effective date; or (2) the day after the postmark date affixed by the U.S. Postal Service,* but only if the following conditions are satisfied:

Your application and the appropriate premium payment are actually received by Golden Rule within 15 days of your signing;**

You are a member of the Federation of American Consumers and Travelers (FACT) in most states;

Your application is properly completed and unaltered;

You are a resident of a state in which the certificate form can be issued; and

If the application is submitted by an agent or broker, the agent or broker is properly licensed to submit applications to Golden Rule.

What happens when I reach the end of my coverage period?

At the end of your coverage term, in most states you may apply for another term for short term health insurance coverage.

What if I only need temporary health insurance coverage for less than 30 days?

In most states you can purchase a short term health insurance plan for one month only.

Why would I want short term insurance coverage for a limited amount of time?

You may be a college student and following graduation you’re no longer eligible for your parent’s health plan and you’re looking for your first job. You may be laid off and looking for work. Maybe you’re an early retiree and waiting for Medicare eligibility. A short term plan can help protect you during life-changing events.

What is short term health insurance?

Short term health insurance is temporary coverage designed to fill gaps in coverage. Short term health insurance plans provide you with coverage for a limited period of time, and may be an ideal solution for those between jobs, waiting for other health insurance to start, college grads coming off their parent’s health plan, or retired early and waiting for Medicare eligibility. If you think you’ll need coverage for a longer period of time, you may want to look at renewable individual and family health insurance plans.

The application process for short term health insurance is usually simpler than renewable health insurance. Short term health insurance plans are designed to cover unforeseen accidents or illnesses, rather than to provide comprehensive coverage, and, as such, typically do not include coverage for preventive care, physicals, immunizations, dental or vision care.

Short term health insurance plans typically do not cover preexisting medical conditions. The definition of a preexisting condition varies by state, but, in general, short term health insurance policies exclude coverage for conditions that have been diagnosed or treated within the previous 2 to 5 years. If you have an existing medical condition, you may want to research whether you can extend your current insurance. Employer-sponsored insurance may be extended under a government-regulated option commonly referred to as COBRA (or similar state program), which you should seriously consider if you have an existing medical condition.
