Temporary health insurance is a short-term plan designed for individuals who don’t currently have health insurance. Temporary policies do not cover pre-existing conditions. Temporary health insurance is also not considered minimum essential coverage under the Affordable Care Act (also called Obamacare), and even if you enroll in and maintain temporary coverage you may NOT be exempt from the Shared Responsibility Payment (tax) that may otherwise apply for not having qualifying health insurance.
