Pick your plan level
Everyone’s budgets and health care needs are different. So we designed our plans that way. They come in different price levels: Bronze, Silver, or Gold. Whether you’re a family of five with lots of doctor’s appointments or someone who just wants to be covered for emergencies, we may have a plan to help match your needs. Learn more and explore your options below.
On this health plan, you’ll have low monthly payments while being covered for check‐ups and preventive care. You could pay more out of pocket if you need more care, but if you don’t expect to go to the doctor very much this year, Bronze may be a good bet. These health plans can be great for people who are younger with no dependents.
On this plan, you’ll get health coverage that covers all the basics and more. You’ll still have lower monthly payments, but may spend a little more out‐of‐pocket if you need to visit the hospital or a specialist. You’ll also get preventive care for $0 with no copay and no deductible from in-network providers. If you work hard to keep yourself in good health, Silver may be a great option for your budget.
Gold! This is a good all‐around health plan. You’ll have lower monthly payments and out‐of‐pocket costs in the event of an illness or hospital visit. You’ll also have a lower deductible to meet, and you can save on visits to doctors or specialists when you need them.
Deductibles & Copays
When you have health insurance, we’re here to help with medical costs. As soon as you start the monthly payments on your plan, you’ll be covered for check-ups and preventive care. Most preventive care is free or costs a fee called a copay. For other care, you might be asked to pay for your care up to a certain amount. That’s reaching your deductible. Once you reach it, we’ll start paying for a big percentage of your costs. You just pay the rest. That’s called your coinsurance. Finally, every plan has an out-of-pocket limit that you can reach if you spend a lot in one year.
The set amount you pay out-of-pocket each year before your plan starts paying for covered services, except for in-network preventive services. In-network preventive services are covered before the deductible is met.
Copays & Coinsurance
A copay is a fixed fee that you pay out-of-pocket for each visit to an in-network health care provider. Coinsurance is the amount you pay for covered health care services. It’s a percentage of the cost of services after the deductible has been paid.
Once you have met your out-of-pocket limit, your plan pays 100% of the maximum allowed amount for covered services for the rest of that calendar year.
