    Yes, you can pay your premiums using your major credit card. You can also pay your premiums through monthly EFT. Another option is to pre-pay your insurance premium.

  • How do I know if a Short-Term Medical plan is right for me?

    The following questions will help you determine what kind of coverage you need. Are you:

    • Between jobs;
    • Newly employed and waiting for your group coverage to begin;
    • Graduating from college or a recent college graduate;
    • A temporary or seasonal employee;
    • A dependent no longer covered under your parents' plan;
    • On strike, laid-off or a terminating employee;
    • A part-time or temporary worker;
    • Looking for a lower-cost alternative to COBRA; or
    • Unable to afford other coverage?

    If you answered YES to any of these situations, a temporary Short-Term Medical plan may meet your health-insurance needs. If you do not fit into one of these categories, chances are you want a Major Individual Medical plan.
