The coverage gap refers to the segment of the adult population living in poverty but with incomes that make them ineligible for Medicaid because their state didn’t expand Medicaid coverage. Incredibly there are people who have incomes too low to receive the subsidized comprehensive coverage provided by the Affordable Care Act on the Health Insurance Marketplace.

A long-term disability plan provides a source of income if you cannot work because of illness or injury. This helps you maintain a percentage of what you earned before you became disabled. Adjustments are made over time to help protect against inflation. Example: A disability plan pays 65% of your salary. You earned $55K before you become disabled at age 95. With no adjustment to your income, inflation would greatly reduce your buying power by the time you reached age 65.

Short-term policies have been around for a long time, and have traditionally been a good option for people who are between jobs or waiting for a new employer’s coverage to become effective. These policies are not regulated by the Affordable Care Act like regular Major Medical plans, and their sale is not limited to open enrollment periods. However, by not having to follow ACA regulation, there is no special enrollment privilege when the short- term policy ends that allows you to then enroll in a qualified plan on the marketplace. You still need to wait until regular enrollment.
