Short Term medical insurance is not minimum essential coverage (MEC) as defined by the ACA. So, Short Term health insurance plans are not required to include essential health benefits that ACA health plans have by law. Because of this, Short Term medical plans will vary in what they do and don’t cover.
Short Term insurance is also not guaranteed issue like ACA health plans are. Being guaranteed issue ensures that with an ACA health plan you cannot be turned down for coverage because of any preexisting conditions you might have. Short Term insurance is medically underwritten. It will not cover any preexisting conditions you might have. You must answer a series of medical questions and then be approved for coverage.
