Short Term Insurance

Temporary Health Insurance Solutions

What is it?

Short-term health insurance is designed to fill gaps of time you may not have coverage. For example, you lose employer coverage and are waiting to get on Medicare. You can fill in this gap of time with a short-term health plan. Short term may also be a low-cost coverage for you if you’d like to have it year-round!

How does it work in New Mexico?

With the recent change in law by the Trump administration, you can now stay on a short-term plan for up to 12 months in New Mexico.

Why purchase short term over a Marketplace plan?

If you’re eligible for a short-term plan, it can be significantly cheaper than going through the marketplace. Especially if you’re not eligible for subsidies on the marketplace.

Pros

  • Affordability! These plans can be huge cost savers compared to other types of insurance.
  • Network – Large network of doctors.
  • Additional Benefits – It’s easy to add on additional coverages that work in tandem with your coverage. Like, accident coverage, hospital coverage, etc.

Cons

  • Underwriting- If you cannot pass the underwriting process you cannot obtain coverage through a short-term plan.
  • Limits – Short-term plans place limits on how much they’ll cover you throughout the life of the policy.
  • Limitation of Benefits – They do not cover certain conditions like pregnancy, mental health, chiropractic care, etc.

Frequently Asked Questions

When can I purchase a short-term plan?

There are no limitations! You can enroll on a short-term plan year-round. In fact, a short term plan can start as soon as the next day in many cases!

Will a short-term plan cover a pre-existing condition?

No, short term plans will typically not cover anything pre-existing.

Will I have to pay a penalty if I use this as my main source of health coverage?

No, the individual mandate has been lowered to zero dollars starting in 2019.

Marketplace Insurance

Traditional Health Insurance Solutions

What is it?

Many people refer to this insurance as “Obamacare.” This is the most traditional type of insurance with deductibles, copays, coinsurance, and all the classic health insurance terms you’ve heard before.  It does not require health underwriting to be approved.

We offer every Marketplace plan here in NM!

Pros

  • If you’re eligible for subsidies, you can achieve huge savings.
  • Comfort of knowing you’re fully covered for both future and pre-existing conditions.
  • You can’t be denied! (As long as you’re applying during a valid enrollment period.)

Cons

  • If you’re not eligible for subsidies, marketplace coverage can be very costly.

Two Formats to Obtain It

On Exchange
  • Requires more questions during the application process.
  • Possibility for subsidies.
  • Depending on your situation, you may have to complete the application through Healthcare.gov

Ideal Candidate

An individual or family that are eligible for subsidies that are looking for traditional insurance options.

Health Share Plans

Faith-Based Health Insurance Solutions

What is it?

A health share plan is a faith-based plan that offers an alternate option to traditional insurance. These plans do not use traditional insurance terminology like deductible, coinsurance, copay, etc. They use their own terminology as a “loophole” to offer coverage that differs from the Marketplace.

How does it work?

Health Share plans offer coverage just like a normal insurance plan. (You just can’t call them insurance.) They do have limitations though. For example, many health share organizations will exclude pre-existing conditions for a period of time upon starting the plan. They may also exclude certain conditions like cancer for a set amount of time as well.

Why purchase Health Share coverage over a Marketplace plan?

Health Share plans can be significantly cheaper than going through the marketplace. Especially if you’re not eligible for subsidies on the marketplace.

Pros

  • Affordability! These plans can be huge cost savers compared to other types of insurance.
  • Additional Benefits – It’s easy to add on additional coverages that work in tandem with your coverage. Like, accident coverage, hospital coverage, etc.

Cons

  • Underwriting- They may exclude any pre-existing conditions you may have for a specified period of time.
  • Limits – Health Share plans place limits on how much they’ll cover you throughout your lifetime.
  • Limitation of Benefits – They may not be as comprehensive as normal health insurance plans.

Frequently Asked Questions

When can I purchase a health share plan?

There are no limitations! You can enroll on a health share plan year-round.

Will a health share plan cover a pre-existing condition?

No, but they may cover it after a specified amount of time after enrollment.

Will I have to pay a penalty if I use this as my main source of health coverage?

No, the individual mandate has been lowered to zero dollars starting in 2019.
