Understanding Your 2020 OptimaFit® Individual & Family Health Plan Options

Individual health plans offer a variety of price options and are categorized by metallic tiers: Gold, Silver, and Bronze.

Categorizing plans by metallic tier makes it easier for you to compare plans based on their cost and coverage options. If you do not qualify for a subsidy, you may want to consider plans not offered on, also known as "Off-Exchange" plans.

This chart provides an overview of health plan tiers to help you determine which metallic plan would be best for you.

Things to Consider

If you don't anticipate you will need a lot of healthcare services, you may want to consider a bronze or silver plan for a lower monthly premium.

However, if you or a family member have a serious injury or illness, a bronze or silver plan will require higher out–of–pocket costs for treatment. With a silver or bronze plan, you pay less on a monthly basis but may pay more for treatment. With a gold plan, you pay more on a monthly basis but much less for treatment.
