What is Medical Insurance?
Medical insurance covers medical expenses when someone is injured, sick, or has other conditions that require medical attention (such as surgeries and pregnancies). Private medical insurance is insurance that you pay for on your own.
Typical health insurance plans for individuals include costs such as a monthly premium, deductibles, copayments, and coinsurance.
Why Do I Need Medical Insurance?
Medical insurance can not only help pay for unexpected medical expenses, but it can also help with routine medical care such as physicals and exams. Getting medical attention at the hospital, emergency room, or doctor’s office can be expensive and medical insurance helps to cover some of those costs.
In 2010, the Affordable Care Act was signed into law, and if an individual did not enroll in the minimum amount of insurance as required by the act, then you were penalized with a federal tax penalty. As of 2019, the federal tax penalty was eliminated.
Short Term Medical Insurance
A short term medical insurance plan is one that provides temporary medical insurance. Temporary medical plans have lower premiums, but typically have more restricted coverage. The following conditions are why people choose to enroll in a short term medical plan:
- They need insurance in between jobs
- Early retirees waiting to enroll in Medicare
- Those waiting for the employer provided insurance to kick in
- Recent college graduates
- Employer doesn’t provide health insurance

- electrocardiogram (ECG, EKG) and X-rays, if needed
