Did you miss the opportunity to enroll an ACA health plan during Open Enrollment? Are you a newly hired and currently have a waiting period on receiving benefits? Are you looking for coverage to start as soon as tomorrow? An interim short-term insurance may be a good option for you.
An interim coverage* is a new short-term medical plan offered by The IHC Group, an Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield trusted partner who has been selling short-term medical plans for over 20 years. Short term insurance provides temporary benefits from 30–180 days, and up to 364 in many states.
It’s designed to offer you financial protection if you have an unexpected injury or illness while waiting for coverage to begin under an ACA-qualified plan.
*Interim coverage does not meet the Affordable Care Act (ACA) requirements for an ACA-compliant plan. Interim coverage does not cover pre-existing conditions and is not guaranteed-issue. Individuals covered only through interim coverage may still be subject to a tax penalty.
