What are the different
types of Health Insurance?

There are essentially two types of health insurance plans: indemnity plans (fee-for services) or managed care plans. The differences include the choice of providers, out-of-pocket costs for covered services and how bills are paid. There is no one “best” plan for everyone. Some plans are better than others for your or your family's health care needs, but no one plan will pay for all the costs associated with your medical care. Reprinted with permission from iii.org.

Short-Term Medical Insurance is an indemnity plan that offers temporary health coverage for accidents and sicknesses. It is not meant to be a long term healthcare solution, but can help individuals between permanent plans protect themselves while they wait for coverage. Short-Term Medical Insurance is great for people in transition – like someone between jobs or just graduated from grad school.

A managed care plan often offers more permanent and comprehensive protection, but can also be more expensive. If you are between permanent plans, Short-Term Medical Insurance can help you bridge the gap.

How much does Health Insurance cost?
