Frequently Asked Questions
1. What are bronze, silver, gold and platinum healthcare plans?
As part of the affordable health care act, all health insurance plans with effective dates of 01-01-2014 or later will have to fall into one of these very high standard classes. As you would expect bronze plans are your least premium cost and platinum the most, silver and gold fills the gap in the middle.
Having been in the insurance business for many years, I consider all plans to be very good choices. All plans have an annual cap on your out of pocket medical expenses, and all plans include the new 10 essential benefits.
