    • Recent college graduates

    How does short-term coverage work?

    The WPS Short-Term Health Plan lets you choose the coverage period, from 30 to 364 days. You can apply for a new plan when the initial one ends, but the combined coverage period may not be more than 18 months.

    Top 5 reasons to choose a WPS Short-Term Health Plan
    1. You choose the coverage period
      You pick the length of time you need, from 30 to 364 days, and you can apply for additional policies (combined coverage period may only be 18 months). Plus your coverage can start as early as tomorrow!
    2. You can access thousands of health care providers
      The WPS Statewide Network allows you to select from thousands of top-quality health care professionals at top-tier facilities across Wisconsin. You can also reach a doctor anytime by phone, computer, or mobile device using telehealth services from Teladoc®.
    3. You choose the deductible
      Select the amount that’s right for you, with deductible options ranging from $1,500 to $15,000.
    4. You can save money
      This plan offers an affordable way to enjoy the benefits of a major medical plan at a cost that is generally lower than COBRA or a standard long-term policy.
    5. You can get discounts on other services
      The Active&Fit Direct program delivers access to 9,000+ participating fitness centers nationwide for only $25 per month (plus a $25 enrollment fee and applicable taxes).
