Bronze Health Plan

What Does Bronze Mean in Health Insurance?

A Bronze insurance plan is 1 of the 4 main types of available health insurance plans often referred to as “metal levels”.  These bronze health insurance plans generally come with lower monthly premiums, but higher expenses. They’re a good option if you use minimal medical services and are mainly seeking protection against substantial costs in case of a severe illness or injury.

Important Note: You might need to pay a significant amount of your healthcare expenses out of your own pocket before a Bronze plan begins to cover its share. This is because this type of plan can come with higher deductibles.

All health plans across the metal levels offer free preventive services, with some plans providing additional services at reduced or no cost before you meet your deductible.
