A special note from HCC: Short-Term Medical ("STM") plans provide temporary, short-term coverage of less than 12 months. STM plans do NOT provide "Minimum Essential Coverage" as defined in the Affordable Care Act ("ACA" also known as "ObamaCare"). STM plans also do not cover pre-existing conditions, cannot be renewed and are not guaranteed issue. If you need continuing care due to a pre-existing condition you should consider applying for an ACA plan. Please review the policy for additional exclusions and limitations. By purchasing an STM, you may still be subject to the ACA tax penalty for not maintaining Minimum Essentials Coverage. You should consult your tax advisor to determine if the ACA tax penalty applies to your specific situation.
Selecting STM may make you ineligible for COBRA. To learn more about COBRA and STM, see here
AFFORDABLE CARE ACT TAX. Short term health insurance is health insurance outside of the Affordable Care Act ("Obamacare").
