Short Term - Temporary Health Insurance in Florida

Short Term - Temporary Health Insurance


You may not have a health problem now, but insurance is for the unexpected.

Just because you don't have health insurance right now doesn't mean you'll never have health problems or an accident.

Anytime you are without insurance, you are running a risk. Use the information here to decide if you need temporary health insurance, and then make your choice between these two great options.

Insurance Supplements Short Term  

Option One

The Secure STM which allows you and your family, up to age 65, to purchase quality, affordable major medical coverage on a temporary basis. Insurance Coverage is provided for physician services, surgery, outpatient and inpatient care.

Option Two

Secure 12x3 STM which allows you and your family, up to age 65, to purchase affordable short-term medical coverage for physician services,surgery, outpatient and inpatient care for a temporary period.

Option One Explained

You can be covered tomorrow, for up to $2 million in medical expenses. That means you can go to any doctor and any hospital. The deductibles can be as low as $250 and the premiums are relatively low (cheap) too. In fact, this is lowest priced insurer of any short term - temporary health insurance plan. All you have to do is fill out an online application. It is really easy.

The insurance company is an "A" rated insurance company and the policy is good for an unlimited number of six or twelve month periods. You can also renew until you are 65 years old.

Of course there is a catch. Each time you renew the policy, every six or twelve months, you must be healthy. The not so funny term "pre-existing condition" can become very important.

Pre-existing condition means that the Florida health insurance company will only pay for illnesses that you did not have when you applied for the policy.

Option Two (the 12 X 3 plan) Explained

For short term temporary Florida health insurance is up to a three year plan. One online health insurance application and you are covered for 12 months that you can renew another 2 times.

There are slightly higher out of pocket expenses than the option above and the limit on medical expense limit is $750,000 (not 2 million).

In essence, if there is a possibility that you will need the short term temporary health insurance for more than one year – take the safe bet (12 X 3).

You must remember

A temporary Florida health insurance plan is - temporary - (short term) If you need Florida heath insurance for a longer period of time you should NOT buy this policy.

A Florida temporary health insurance plan is for the short term. If you should become seriously ill or hospitalized while you are on a temporary health plan, you may probably will not be able to renew it. In addition, you will probably be ineligible for other Florida health insurance plans.

Remember, you can drop a so-called "permanent" plan any time you want.

If you need Florida health insurance for more than three years or so, don't take the chance with a Florida temporary insurance policy.

An important note:

If you apply online you will use a credit card, have the premium taken out of your checking account each month or prepay. If you do not use a credit card, they will be waiting for a check for the initial premium.

Many folks apply online and never send in the check. If you use a checking account, they want the first month's payment directly from you. They will not draft the initial payment from your account. A credit card is the best way to pay for Florida temporary health insurance.

Our Experience

We have carried short term temporary Florida health insurance plans from many different Florida insurers in the past. Some were liberal with underwriting or could be held for a longer period of time.

We stopped working with them because many of those health insurance plans have either changed their standards or are not available.

So, we are sticking with one Florida insurer that gives us the best rates, the most complete coverage and has been in the temporary short term health insurance business for a long time.

The plans we offer also alow you to choose monthly payments or you can save money by paying yearly.
