If you can find the “California Covered” PDF you’ll find details on pricing, probably more than you want; I saw it yesterday. For standard definitions and benefit comparisons of “bronze, silver, gold, platinum” you’ll probably have to go elsewhere.

I found the CA rate document again:

Without going into actual included benefits, the four "metal" levels as they call it correspond to subscribers' financial exposure levels, like this

Bronze: 60%
Silver: 70%
Gold: 80%
Platinum: 90%

So your "financial exposure level" is the 100% minus the above percentage

Naturally, premiums are least for the bronze plans and most for the platinum plans.

Thanks; saved it to HD folder. It’ll take some time to get thru and cross-reference with other states’ docs, if I can find them.

to maintain similar coverage to what I have now, my premium out of pocket cost would double and some of the coverages that I take advantage of now would decrease.

Of course I am in MN, so that might be part of the differential; however, the only affordable option is the lowest cost (most affordable) bronze plan with about 6.35K out of pocket max and fairly exorbitant co-pays and visit fees. Family out of pocket max is 12.7K in this tier.

There’s no way I would survive under this type of system, which is what (I am convinced) they are after - to eradicate a large segment of the population...
