If you qualify, Connect Plus provides up to a maximum benefit of $25,000 for eligible healthcare expenses related to pre-existing conditions.
Pre-existing conditions are defined as:
Any medical condition or sickness for which medical advice, care, diagnosis, treatment, consultation or medication was recommended or received from a doctor within 5 years preceding your effective date of coverage; or symptoms within 5 years immediately prior to the coverage that would cause a reasonable person to seek diagnosis, care or treatment. The time period may vary by state.
Specific pre-existing conditions are subject to review and approval during the application process, but examples of covered pre-existing medical conditions include asthma, allergies or broken bones.
How do you find out if your pre-existing condition is covered? Begin the quote and enroll process now (pre-existing conditions are included on the health history questionnaire), or call the number on your screen to speak with an advisor.
When it comes to buying coverage, receiving care and getting claims paid, Connect Plus works like other short-term health insurance plans.
You apply for a Connect Plus plan, including answering a short health history questionnaire. Once approved, you pay a monthly premium and begin coverage on your selected effective date.
When you need healthcare, you visit a provider who accepts temporary coverage and present your insurance card. The healthcare provider will file the claim.
Your Connect Plus plan will pay its portion of covered expenses. You will be billed for the remaining costs, subject to your plan’s deductible and coinsurance amounts.
Let’s look at an example that shows how Connect Plus can help relieve some of the financial burden associated with a high-cost medical event.
In this scenario, the individual covered incurs a claim of $30,000 related to a pre-existing condition. Their Connect Plus plan has the following policy benefits:
$5,000 | 50/50% coinsurance | $2,000 out-of-pocket maximum (after deductible)
|First Claim: Eligible/Allowed Amount = $30,000||Plan Pays||Insured Pays|
|Claim capped at $25,000 maximum benefit||$0||$5,000|
|Deductible $5,000 (per policy period)||$0||$5,000|
|Coinsurance 50/50 up to out-of-pocket maximum of $2,000 (per policy period)||$18,000||$2,000|
The pre-existing condition benefit has now been exhausted, as it is limited to a single claim up to $25,000.
