Do You Need Health Insurance After Becoming Recently Unemployed?

You may remain insured on your former employer’s group health plan via the COBRA law. It’s the smart choice if you need treatment or medication for pre-existing conditions.

Many people who suffer a job loss will use “gap health insurance”. These types of plans provide coverage for new illnesses and unexpected accidents.

Temporary Medical Health Insurance as an Alternative to COBRA

COBRA insurance is expensive. Instead of continuing on work insurance, using a temporary health plan is an affordable way to cover an insurance gap until your next major medical begins. These plans do not have coverage for pre-existing conditions.

The cost of temporary medical insurance is dependent on your age, the state you live in and if you are a tobacco user.

These plans are available for one month to one year. Coverage may begin as early as tomorrow.

Examples of available temporary health plans:

Short Term Medical Insurance

New Illnesses & Injury Coverage

Flex term short term medical insurance

COBRA Is A Major Medical Plan

When you sign up for COBRA, you are keeping the same work health insurance you had when you were employed. It’s great for those with preexisting conditions or see a doctor regularly.

After you make your first premium payment, your insurance restarts and what you’ve paid in for deductibles picks up where they left off.

Employer-sponsored health insurance is required to be a comprehensive plan.

These are major medical plans that cover:

New Major Medical

As you’ve had a qualifying event to obtain new health coverage, you may look for a new permanent comprehensive health plan through the healthcare marketplace.

Temporary Health Insurance Solutions

If COBRA coverage is unavailable or if you simply can not afford it, you can get alternative health coverage for new illnesses or injuries.

Many people will enroll in Short-Term Medical insurance or an Accident Only plan to “get by” until their next major medical insurance starts. This type of insurance is also known as “gap insurance”.

These plans are not for everyone, but may may be a good choice for you if:

  • You have no pre-existing conditions.
  • Want to stay insured at a lower cost.
  • You are not pregnant or plan on becoming pregnant soon.
  • Have had no recent health problems.
  • Have not received any advice from medical professionals advising you to undergo a medical procedure in the future.
  • When you need health insurance and it’s not yet a federal open enrollment period to enroll in a qualified health plan.
