PORTLAND, Ore., Sept. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Regence Life and Health Insurance Company offers an affordable, short-term medical solution for uninsured Oregonians who are seeking a job, starting up a business, going back to school or waiting for a group plan to take effect. InterM is specifically designed for healthy individuals and families who need temporary medical insurance, allowing them to purchase a policy for as little as 30 days up to 185 days.
InterM can help prevent financial disaster in case of unexpected medical costs including the freedom to see any doctor anywhere and be covered for physician services, prescriptions, ambulance, lab and x-rays, hospital room and board, emergency room visits and more. InterM's accidental death coverage provides some peace of mind with a $25,000 benefit for the members and covered spouses.
