Temporary Health Insurance in Oklahoma
And the Oklahoma Extension of Coverage
Probably one good reason not to quit from your current job is your group health insurance coverage. Health insurance is no lesser a problem than it was 20 years ago. There hasn’t been any reform to state laws that has allowed health insurance available to everyone, especially to those with limited income and expensive health conditions. A great number of people get their health insurance coverage from their employer. And losing a job can mean a lot of things, and most of them undesirable.
Temporary health insurance in Oklahoma serves to fill in the gaps in health protection for people who are in between jobs, new graduates and the legally separated spouse who are no longer eligible dependents as per plan policies, part-time employees and early retirees waiting for Medicaid. Getting temporary health insurance in Oklahoma for people with good health conditions is not a problem. There are several private health insurance companies offering temporary health insurance plans for a discounted cost and with the same coverage and benefits as that of a regular health insurance plan. But what about someone who has a preexisting health condition?
Temporary health insurance in Oklahoma will only suit people who have less to worry about their health condition. People with preexisting health conditions on the other hand may not find any use in temporary health insurance, for the reason that it will not give coverage to any preexisting condition.
If your previous health insurance plan gave coverage to your preexisting health condition, one better way of getting temporary health insurance in Oklahoma is through the Oklahoma Extension of Coverage. This is a state program that allows employees and their dependents who were fully insured by their previous group health insurance plan to retain their coverage.
You can keep your group health insurance plan for 30 days right after your dismissal from your previous employer and have the same coverage when you were still employed. You won’t have to pay for the premium of the group health insurance plan unless you make a claim. Your premium for that 30-day period will only be deducted to the amount of your claim. The coverage may even be extended for more than 30 days if you are totally disabled, pregnant or if you are undergoing treatment for a serious illness. You need to be fully insured by your previous group health insurance plan for at least 6 months to be eligible for a longer coverage extension. Applying for Oklahoma Extension of Coverage Program is also one of the best ways of keeping you covered while you wait for your new group health insurance plan’s preexisting condition exclusion to be completed.
