A new temporary health insurance policy is now available in eight states.
Humana Inc., Louisville, Ky., has introduced the HumanaOne Short Term Medical product in Alabama, Arizona, Colorado, Louisiana, Michigan, Nebraska, Ohio and Wisconsin.
Coverage can take effect the day after an applicant is approved, Humana says.
Coverage terms can range from 30 days to 6 months, or, in some cases, to a year.
The deductible can be $500 or $5,000 for individuals, or $1,000 or $10,000 for families.
