Housed within the REALTORS® Insurance Marketplace, Temporary (Short Term) Health Insurance plans are available to NAR members, via the Major Medical Health Insurance Exchange. This exchange is a ‘one-stop’ shopping site.
Using the latest technology, members can research temporary health insurance information, obtain a quote, and purchase directly online. Temporary Health Insurance (a.k.a. Short Term medical insurance) is designed to be an affordable medical policy which can last from 30 days to 6 months.

Temporary Health Insurance plans are great for those:
