Metal Levels

The Affordable Care Act requires new individual plans provide coverage at designated coverage, or “metal” levels.

The defined metal levels are platinum, gold, silver and bronze. You can select a plan level that best suits your preferences. Generally premiums are higher for platinum plans, and you pay less in deductibles, coinsurance and copays. With bronze plans, premiums are generally lower, and you pay more in deductibles, coinsurance and copays.

Platinum – plans pay 90% of covered costs on average
Gold – plans pay 80% of covered costs on average
Silver – plans pay 70% of covered costs on average
Bronze – plans pay 60% of covered costs on average
