Short-term health insurance plans are designed to temporally fill coverage gaps for people in transition. These gaps in coverage could happen to recent college graduates, people between jobs or early retirees. You get to choose the term when you buy the policy. Usually these terms are anywhere from one to eleven months in most states and up to four or six months in others.
These plans are not temporary versions of the standard individual health insurance plans you buy from insurers and the government-run exchanges under today's health care reform rules. They also usually don't count as coverage to meet the federal government's requirement to have health insurance. You could still get fined a tax penalty for being uninsured, even if you have a short-term health plan for most of the year.
The end of a short-term plan does not qualify you to enroll in a standard health plan outside the annual open enrollment period. If you enroll in a short-term plan instead of choosing COBRA coverage, you will lose eligibility for COBRA after the short-term plan expires. So, Short-term health plans may appeal to people who want coverage for catastrophes and are willing to sacrifice other benefits to get a lower premium.
