Educating Consumers on the Risks of Short-Term Plans Act of 2019

This bill requires health insurers offering short-term, limited-duration insurance coverage to prominently disclose all medical conditions for which an individual may be denied coverage, limited in coverage, or subject to a premium increase. (Short-term, limited-duration insurance coverage is designed to fill a temporary gap in insurance coverage.)

Insurers must further disclose that this type of coverage is temporary, provides limited benefits, and is subject to termination. Insurers may not enroll an individual in a short-term, limited-duration insurance plan during any time in which that individual is eligible for open enrollment in coverage through the health insurance exchange.
