I’m disabled and we had insurance through TRICARE but my husband retired in Feb so they cancelled my insurance. I just need some insurance for a couple of months until I can enroll in Medicare. Is this possible? I need some insurance because I have doctors appointments and medicine that I need to get.
When you get covered through the Marketplace that plan lasts a year. However, you can cancel at anytime. This means you can keep coverage for any length of time up to a year, each year.
Please note however, your plan won't start until the 1st after the month you buy it if you enroll before the 15th. It starts on the month after that if you buy it after.
Actual short term plans may start quicker, but don't protect you from the fee, and don't have to accept you.
