Short-term, limited-duration insurance plans could see boost

By Trevor BrownOklahoma WatchCheaper, stripped-down health plans could soon see a resurgence in Oklahoma, potentially reducing the number of uninsured while leaving policyholders with unexpected medical bills.A pair of recent moves by the Trump Administration and state lawmakers will allow consumers to buy short-term, limited-duration insurance plans for up to 36 months — an expansion six times longer than the current six-month limit.These policies have traditionally been used as temporary or gap coverage — for example, if someone is between jobs — and can be purchased for a fraction of Affordable Care Act-compliant plans on the federal exchange.But the plans come with a big caveat: They often lack key benefits, such as prescription, maternity and cancer coverage, that are mandated for plans on the exchange.Additionally, the short-term plans are exempt from having to accept individuals with pre-existing conditions, another hallmark of the federal health-care law.The move reflects a broader philosophical debate over the future of health care in the country and Oklahoma: Should consumers have more options to buy health insurance at different prices or should the government block plans that lack key benefits and consumer protections?“It harkens back to the old days when the market was more of a wild west,” said Sara Collins, vice president of health-care coverage and access for the Commonwealth Fund, a Washington, D.C.-based group that supports universal health care.
