Bronze, Silver, Gold, or Platinum: How to Choose the Right Level of Coverage

Most health plans offered through Covered California are labeled with a metal tier: Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum. The metal is used to signal how generous the plan coverage will be. The more valuable the metal is, the more the plan will pay for the coverage. Bronze represents the lowest level of coverage, and Platinum represents the highest level of coverage. Learn more from our Bronze, Silver, Gold, or Platinum: How to Choose the Right Level of Coverage factsheet.
