United Healthcare is known for offering some of the most comprehensive short term health insurance plans offered today.
Most plans can be purchased to cover at least a year. And some go up to three years with no need for additional medical underwriting.
Policies will cover up to two million per insured for the term you choose. There are several deductible and coinsurance options to meet your needs and budget.
UHC short term plans cover almost all major events you would expect them to, like: Accidents, illnesses, hospitalizations, office visits, urgent care, etc. They don’t cover maternity however, so they aren’t appropriate for those looking to cover a pregnancy. And they are medically underwritten. You can be turned down for poor health. Those with preexisting conditions are usually better off purchasing plans on the Marketplace.
Additionally, United Healthcare offers accident and illness coverage on a stand alone basis. There are several plans to choose from with each type of plan and premiums will vary depending on the amount of insurance selected.
As you would expect, preexisting injuries and illnesses are not covered under any plan. Individual benefits can be purchased that would cover or payout a maximum of $50,000 per incident and/or illness however.
Typically accident plans are purchased for young families with active children while critical illness insurance might be for someone who is older with a history of illness in the family.
Neither of these plans are necessarily a substitute for a short or long term disability insurance plan; rather they fill a gap for those who wish to protect against future unknowns.
UHC offers very popular dental and vision plans. There large PPO network of over 70,000 dentists covers much of the United States. Policies have no age limits.
In most areas, there are four or more plans to choose from with a wide array of benefits. All plans will cover routine cleanings and x-rays. Moving up from there, you’ll see coverage for basic services like cavities to major services like bridges, crowns and root canals. Still other policies will cover orthodontics and braces.
Yearly benefit maximums will depend on the plan you select. Most start as $1,000 maximum per year, but others can go up to $2,000 or more depending on your needs.
