What's covered in our plans?
Plans offer coverage for a variety of medical services like doctor office visits, emergency room care, hospital stays, surgery and more after a deductible is met.
Some plans offer doctor office copays for primary care and Urgent Care. Each plan also includes coinsurance, which is the portion an insured is required to pay after the deductible is met.
It is important to review the Plan Details and understand full services provided, coinsurance out-of-pocket maximums, exclusions and limitations.
What is short-term health insurance?
Short-term health plans are temporary coverage that can offer financial protection for medical services such as doctor office visits, emergency room visits, hospital stays and more. Short term medical plans can be a flexible option for individuals in an employer waiting period, between jobs or individuals who missed the open enrollment period.
How do our plans differ from ACA?
It is important to know short term medical health plans are not required to meet the essential standards of the Affordable Care Act, and in some states, the length of a policy might be limited according to state-specific rules. Pre-existing conditions are also not initially covered by short term health insurance, and companies are allowed to ask medical questions in order to qualify an individual for coverage.
Do Pivot Health policies cover pre-existing conditions?
In most states, pre-existing conditions diagnosed within the past 5 years are generally not covered under this plan. However, qualifying conditions you develop throughout the year while insured by a short-term plan could be covered. Certain exclusions apply. See plan details for more information
