Pivot Health offers Short Term Medical (STM) plans in 27 states. The length of the available coverage term varies by state. Below you will find the states where Pivot Health plans are available and the policy term duration's for their plans in each state.
The Pivot Health STM plan provide an excellent base of protection. However, Short term medical (STM) plans do not cover all the services/treatments mandated under Obamacare (e.g. maternity, preventive care, outpatient mental health services and prescription drugs) and they do not cover any pre-existing conditions.
Therefore, to enhance your overall coverage, you can also add any or all the following supplemental benefits available on our US Supplemental Coverage page to make your overall plan as comprehensive as you want:
- Accident Protection Plans
- Critical Illness Plans
- Cancer and Dread Disease Treatment Plans
- First Day Hospital/ICU Stay Protection
- 100% Preventive Care (Per ACA/Obamacare guidelines)
- Additional Outpatient Benefits
- Prescription Drug coverage
- Dental and Vision

Both PPO Network and NO Network (Reference Based Pricing) Options
Reference Based Pricing Model:
Pivot Health Classic STM plans are set up differently than health plans that utilize a PPO or HMO or other type of provider network. There is NO network with these plans. Consumers can see ANY doctor or hospital facility. Billing is repriced based on the usual and customary fee schedule which is stated on the medical plan ID card. This is known as “Reference Based Pricing.”
Here is a short video with more information on Pivot plans and Reference Based Pricing.
The Pivot Health short term medical claims reimbursement system is set up to guarantee that no member will be responsible for a balance bill due to the discount taken for charges above the Medicare Reference Pricing amount, subject to the terms outlined in the certificate of insurance. This insurance plan reimburses medical providers based on a percentage above Medicare allowable amounts, paying:
• 150% of Medicare allowable amount for medical facilities
• 125% of Medicare allowable amount for physician claims
If a provider wishes to review and discuss the allowed amount or initially objects to the reimbursement amount, the provider is connected to the repricing vendor. The repricing vendor is authorized to negotiate a settlement.
NOTE: As your agent I am here to help you through the process if a provider attempts to bill you (aka balance billing) for an amount above the allowed amount that these plans pay. Once you are covered, I will provide you with the information needed to submit any balance bill from a provider to Pivot for processing.
PPO Network Plans:
Pivot Health Quantum PPO STM plans utilize the Cigna nationwide PPO network.
