Why Choose Everest Short-Term Medical Insurance Plans?
Wellness Benefit Coverage: Your Everest STM plan provides you 100% coverage relating to Eligible Wellness Benefit Expenses incurred above your $50 Wellness Copayment. Wellness Benefits, such as routine physical exams, age appropriate tests and procedures, are not subject to the Plan Deductible.
Financial Strength: Everest STM is underwritten by the Everest Reinsurance Company, and it is rated A+ Superior by the A.M. Best Company (9/9/15). A.M. Best is an independent global rating organization that examines insurance companies and publishes its opinion on their financial strength.
Affordability: Short-term medical (STM) insurance provides coverage that is designed for your needs, peace of mind, and financial well-being from the ever-rising costs of healthcare expenses. You may be still subject to the ACA tax penalty, but in many cases an STM with a penalty is more cost-effective than an ACA plan.
It is ideal for those who are:
Bridging the open enrollment gap
Part-time or temporary employees
Without adequate health insurance
Between jobs or have been laid-off
Waiting for employer benefits to start
