What is Celtic Short-Term?

Celtic Short-Term is a high quality, temporary health care plan. You can apply for this one-term , nonrenewable policy for one to six months of coverage at a deductible level that best suits your budget.

How Does The Plan Work?

Benefits are paid on covered expenses subject to the deductible you select. Once the deductible is satisfied, Celtic Short-Term pays 80% of the next $5,000 of covered expenses. After that, Short-Term pays 100% of covered expenses up to $2,000,000 per insured. The chart shows the most you will ever pay per person, per period (excluding premium payments), based on your deductible and eligible expenses.

Your Deductible +20% Of The Next $5,000 =Maximum Out-of-Pocket
$250 +$1,000 =$1,250
$500 +$1,000 =$1,500
$1,000 +$1,000 =$2,000

What is NOT covered?

The Celtic Short-Term Health Plan is not designed to cover pre-existing conditions. Specifically, a pre-existing condition is a medical condition or symptom that occurred prior to the effective date and was diagnosed by a physician with consultation, advice or treatment. It is also a medical condition or symptom which would cause a prudent person to seek diagnosis, care or treatment. Expenses resulting from a normal pregnancy, "well care" (such as routine physical exams, dental care (except as a result of bodily injury), cosmetic surgery and outpatient psychiatric care are also excluded from coverage. Other limitations and exclusions are listed in the Celtic Short-Term policy and may vary according to the state in which you reside.

How Much Will It Cost?

Premiums are based on a number of factors, including choice of deductible, number of people covered, length of coverage, age, sex and where you live. Payment for the entire period of coverage must accompany the applications, and no refunds are issued in the event that coverage is not required for the full benefit period selected. Payment may be made by check, Visa or MasterCard. (The credit card option in not available in AL.) If paying by credit card, the payment section on the application must be completed.
