Even with an Obamacare health insurance plan, the financial impact of an accident or serious illness can strain your budget. Metal Gap 2 from The IHC Group provides payments, made directly to you, when a covered critical illness or accident occurs.
Because the payment is sent directly to you, it can be used to pay for your health plan’s deductible or other cost-sharing, or for everyday expenses such as rent, a mortgage, a car payment or credit card bills. And just like your Obamacare plan, Metal Gap 2 is a guarantee issue plan, meaning you cannot be turned down for coverage based on your health history.
These products are not qualifying health coverage (“Minimum Essential Coverage”) that satisfies the health coverage requirement of the Affordable Care Act. If you don't have Minimum Essential Coverage, you may owe an additional payment with your taxes. The termination or loss of this policy does not entitle you to a special enrollment period to purchase a health benefit plan that qualifies as minimum essential coverage outside of an open enrollment period. These products may include a pre-existing condition exclusion provision.
