What does "short gap eligibility" mean? I have had no gaps in coverage

If you have had insurance all year then a "short gap eligibility" doesn't apply to you. 

What qualifies as a short coverage gap?

In general, a gap in coverage that lasts less than three months qualifies as a short coverage gap. If an individual has more than one short coverage gap during a year, the short coverage gap exemption only applies to the first gap.
