A benefit period is the length of time during which the policyholder of their dependents may file and receive payment for covered services. The benefit period for health insurance can vary depending on if it is a stand-alone policy or a group policy, such as an employer sponsored plan. Individual plans have benefit periods valid for one year and will require payment of a new premium to continue coverage.
