ObamaCare’s Silver Plan is a type of Metal Plan on the Health Insurance Marketplace. Silver Plans qualify for both Tax Credits and Cost Sharing subsidies.Silver Plans have lower out-of-pocket costs than Bronze Plans but higher out- of-pocket costs than both Gold and Platinum Plans. All Silver Plans share the same minimum health benefits, but the way they charge out-of-pocket costs can differ significantly.
The fundamental difference among the new Obamacare health plans is the percentage of covered medical costs paid by the health plan. The Silver Plan pays 70% of covered medical costs for a typical enrollee. Silver Plans are also the only metal plans which offer cost-sharing reduction (CSR) versions to consumers that require financial assistance for out-of-pocket costs.
The monthly premium for a Silver 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 the region in which you live. You can use HealthPocket’s comparison tool to compare Silver Plan premiums in your area.
The Open Enrollment period for the 2018 Affordable Care Act health plans begins November 1, 2017 and ends December 15, 2017. See our Open Enrollment article for more information.
