Choosing a coverage level
Health insurance plans are categorized into five tiers: Catastrophic, Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum. These tiers represent different levels of coverage and cost-sharing.
Are you and your family mostly healthy, or do you have ongoing medical needs? Consider your health needs when choosing.
Think about expected healthcare costs, like medications, doctor visits, or surgeries.
Account for doctor visits and chronic conditions. The right coverage tier depends on your situation.
Balance premium costs (based on factors like age and tax credits) with out-of-pocket expenses for an informed choice.

Consider the Provider Network
Provider Networks are doctors, hospitals, and other healthcare facilities who have contracts with Mountain Health Co-Op to provide services at lower negotiated rates. These rates are known as In-Network rates.
If more than one network is available for your location consider your medical history and travel preferences.
For example, if you have an existing relationship with a Primary Care Provider or a specialist, find out if they are in the network you’re considering joining.

Understand plan costs
Weigh the trade-offs of a low monthly premium with higher out-of-pocket costs versus higher premiums with lower out-of-pocket costs.
Current treatments, meds, and significant upcoming life changes such as pregnancy, retiring, or elective surgery should factor into your decision.
Monthly Premium Costs
Your premiums are calculated based on individual circumstances, such as age, location, and plan type.
Tax credits may lower your monthly premium and are calculated via your state’s marketplace.
