One of 4 plan categories (also known as “metal levels”) in the Health Insurance Marketplace.
♦ Bronze plans usually have the lowest monthly premiums but the highest costs when you get care.
They can be a good choice if you usually use few medical services and mostly want protection from very high costs if you get seriously sick or injured.
♦ Bronze plan deductibles can be very high. This means you could have to pay thousands of dollars of health care costs yourself before your plan starts to pay its share.
All health plans in all categories provide free preventive services, and some plans offer other services at low or no cost before you meet your deductible.
