Policy start date
The policy start date marks the start of your insurance policy.
For digital insurance providers like OneDegree, the date you purchase a policy online is also your policy start date.
If you're buying a new policy, bear in mind coverage might not be effective immediately on your policy start date. Most health insurance plans impose waiting periods, a set time that must pass before you can start making claims. Check out the definition for Waiting Period for more on how that works.
