Short Term Medical (STM), supplemental plans and Health Care Reform
Short‐term, limited duration plans are not subject to certain provisions of federal health care reform, including the provisions related to Essential Health Benefits, lifetime limits, preventive care, guaranteed renewability, and pre‐existing conditions. The preexisting condition exclusion for Short Term Medical plans will apply for all insureds, including those under the age of 19. Examples of the claims STM plans do not cover are for most preventive care, maternity, mental health and treatment related to medical conditions they had prior to the plan’s effective date. Because these plans are not guaranteed renewable, the applicant may not be eligible for another short‐term plan after the plan’s termination date; and the pre‐existing condition exclusion will apply to any conditions that arose during any prior short‐term plans. Know your plan.
