I am getting a new job, and they do not offer insurance for the first 90 days of employment. I have insurance with my current employer, but during that 90 days, I was going to get short term. Will I be penalized by doing this?
You can have up to a 90 day gap each year in coverage. If it will be more, don't go short term, go with COBRA or even Marketplace coverage to avoid the fee.
