ObamaCare’s Gold Plan is a type of Metal Plan on the Health Insurance Marketplace. Gold Plans qualify for Tax Credits, have high premiums, and good cost sharing. Gold plans mean higher premiums, less Tax Credits, but much better cost sharing on average than Silver or Bronze.
The fundamental difference among the new Obamacare health plans is the percentage of covered medical costs paid by the health plan. The Gold Plan typically pays 80% of covered medical costs.
The monthly premium for a Gold Plan depends on the insurer from whom you purchase the plan, the number of people to be insured by the plan, your age, whether you smoke, and your geographic region. You can use HealthPocket’s comparison tool to compare Gold Plan premiums in your area.
