What to Look for in AZ Health Plans

"Due to the provisions that came from the Affordable Care Act (ACA), Arizona residents looking for health insurance have accessibility to more affordable health plans than before. Of these changes came the option to choose from four different levels of coverage, or 'metal levels,' to help families with specific medical or budget needs. 

The four plan types are:

  1. Bronze: 60% covered by your health insurance provider, 40% covered by you.
  2. Silver: 70% covered by your health insurance provider, 30% covered by you.
  3. Gold: 80% covered by your health insurance provider, 20% covered by you.
  4. Platinum: 90% covered by your health insurance provider, 10% covered by you.

Generally, the more you pay in monthly premiums for your health plan, the more coverage you'll receive from your health insurance provider. This can be especially good for families who are generally healthy and want to keep premiums low, or for families who frequently visit the doctor, specialist, or hospital, and want to keep out-of-pocket costs low. 

However, no matter what level of coverage you purchase, the ACA requires that all health plans include ten essential health benefits. These benefits were determined to be necessary health services that maintain good overall health. This includes:

  1. Prescription drugs
  2. Pediatric services
  3. Preventive and wellness services, and chronic disease management
  4. Emergency services
  5. Hospitalization
  6. Mental health and addiction services
  7. Pregnancy, maternity, and newborn care
  8. Ambulatory patient services
  9. Laboratory services
  10. Rehabilitative and habilitative services and devices

These, in addition to covered preventive services help families looking to stretch their money find the health coverage they need without going over budget."
