How do I choose a health plan?

It can be overwhelming to find the right health plan for you and your family. Starting in 2014, all health insurance newly sold to individuals and small businesses must be classified as one of the four levels of coverage: Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum. In addition, a minimum-coverage plan will be available to those who are under 30 years old or can provide a certification that they are without affordable coverage or are experiencing hardship.

This system will make it easier for you to compare plans.

  • You can choose to pay a higher monthly premium for a Platinum or Gold plan so that when you need medical coverage you pay less.
  • Or you can choose to pay a lower monthly premium for a Silver or Bronze plan, but when you need medical coverage, you pay more.

It's up to you.

If you need help understanding the levels of coverage and making a choice that works for you and your family, visit Covered California online or contact them at 800-300-1506 (TTY: 888-889-4500).
