Buying a policy to cover unexpected medical expenses can be confusing, especially if you have never bought your own health insurance before. One option that is available is a short-term medical plan. Before you purchase this type of plan, it is important that you understand what it covers and how it works.What is a Short-Term Medical Plan?A short-term medical plan is a non-renewable health plan that is issued for a maximum period of less than three months. Short-term medical plans may have lower premiums as a direct result of offering less coverage. You should carefully consider the benefits you need before agreeing to purchase a short-term medical plan. Also, you should carefully consider other types of health insurance, such as a policy that provides longer term coverage, more benefits and/or for which you may qualify for tax credits through the Maryland Health Connection to help pay the premium. Please see more information about the Maryland Health Connection below.
