Short-Term Health Insurance

Short term medical, also called temporary health insurance or term health insurance, is the perfect solution for those needing health insurance for a short period of time (typically between 1 and 12 months). Enroll in a temporary health insurance plan if you are uninsured, unemployed, self-employed or just need an affordable health insurance plan. Many people even use these term insurance plans as a replacement to Obamacare or health insurance exchange plans, as they can provide great savings in many cases. These temporary health plans can go into effect as soon as the next day and allow you to cancel at any time, without penalty. Compare quotes and prices from the most trusted short term health insurance providers, at the lowest costs available.
