Short-Term Health Insurance Plans and Surprise Medical Fees

Short-term health insurance plans were offered to Americans to provide limited healthcare coverage. However, providers of short-term health insurance are not required to follow the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Also, these are less expensive, health coverage is only for less than a year, excludes people with pre-existing conditions, and does not cover many benefits.

In a published article in The Hill, the Biden administration announced on Friday that it plans to crack down on these short-term health insurance plans and surprise medical fees as part of the Bidenomics. The current administration aims to lower the healthcare cost for Americans.

Meanwhile, part of the agenda is to stop the surprise medical fees that affected millions of Americans across the country. Oftentimes, there are instances when a patient goes to the hospital and ended up paying in cash the hospital billing because the facility is not in-network of their health insurance provider.
