What is short-term health insurance?

Temporary Health Insurance

Short-term health insurance is very similar to regular health insurance except the health insurance plans have a fixed coverage period. Plans such as these are usually in force for anywhere from one month to a maximum of twelve months, though some companies limit coverage to a maximum of six months. Most short-term health insurance plans are fee-for-service plans, though some offer managed care plans such as HMOs and PPOs.
