The easy answer in 2018 is no. However, this will be changing in 2019. The new mandate will make it so that short-term health insurance plans will last up to 364 days.
With fewer than 90 days left until the start of 2019, those buying 90 day short-term plans will not have to worry about renewing these policies. Instead, if they decide not to enroll in a long-term plan during open enrollment (November 1st- December 15th), they can start a new 364 day plan on January 1st instead.
