The Gold Plan in Comparison to Other Metal Plans

While the Gold plan has second highest monthly premium, plans are available with “first-dollar” advantage. First dollar means that as soon as you seek care your provider pays their share. As well, as if you do get a plan with a deductible, if it follows California’s lead, Colorado Gold plans will offer many benefits before the deductible is satisfied. A plan like the Bronze plan may have a lower monthly premium, but a Gold plan, if you get sick, could save you money throughout the year.
