Short Term Coverage
Blue Cross of Idaho's Short Term PPOsm offers a limited benefit program for temporary coverage. You can protect yourself and eligible dependents during those times between coverage, choosing coverage for just one month, or up to ten months. Once you enroll you may not enroll any additional dependents with the sole exception of a newborn or an adopted child.
Short Term PPO does not provide extensive, catastrophic coverage, like organ transplants, that major medical programs often cover. It is designed to cover typical, short term illness or injuries that could occur while you're between full benefit programs.
Short Term coverage does not cover any preexisting conditions. You must be under age 65 and an Idaho resident to enroll in Short Term PPO.
