You will have a wide variety of health plans to choose from. Health insurance companies cannot refuse to cover you because you have been sick before or could not get coverage.
Covered California offers four groups of private health insurance plans: platinum, gold, silver, and bronze, plus a minimum coverage plan.
Each group offers a different level of coverage, from high to low. Health insurance plans that cover more of your medical expenses will usually have a higher premium but allow you to pay less when you receive medical care.
Platinum plans have the highest premium, but they pay 90% of your health care expenses. Gold plans pay pay 80% and silver plans pay 70% of your health care expenses. Bronze plans have the lowest premium but pay just 60% of covered health expenses.
If you qualify for Medi-Cal, the coverage and costs are different and may be free for you.
