|Many families will find themselves without medical coverage at some point in their lives. So, what do you do if you find yourself in this situation? Here are some thing that you should consider when purchasing quality, low-cost temporary family health insurance. |
Low-cost temporary family health insurance is available for those under 65 and who are in generally good health. It also usually covers dependants under 19, as well. Although these policies are only good for six months or so, you can reapply for coverage, as needed. Bear in mind, however, that any illness or condition that occurred during this temporary coverage will be treated as a pre-existing condition under the new policy.
Before you apply, however, there are some questions you should ask the salesman or representative. You need to be certain of the maximum policy benefit, for example, and you should make sure of the co-payment schedule. Many low-cost temporary family health insurance plans are PPO networks, so you need to find out if you are required to have a primary care physician. You should also ask the representative how pre-existing conditions will be treated under the plan. Some companies will not cover pre-existing diseases or conditions; some will do so, after a pre-determined period, like twenty-four months.
There are many good low-cost temporary family health insurance plans available and with a little patience and research, you will find the policy that is just right for your family.
