We realize that many Virginians, for one reason or another, are in need of health care protection for just a short period of time. That's why we've developed Short Option. It offers benefits similar to those available through our traditional major medical programs, but is designed especially for those in need of temporary protection. It is important to note that because this policy offers coverage for a limited period of time, past or present health conditions are not covered.
This information is intended to be a brief outline of coverage. All terms and conditions of coverage, including benefits and exclusions, are contained in the member’s Certificate of Coverage which shall control in the event of a conflict with this overview.
