Gold Health Plan

Plans in Washington Healthplanfinder are available in 4 categories – Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum. The category you choose impacts how much of the overall costs of services your insurer pays per year. On average, a Bronze plan pays 60% of the costs, a Silver plan pays 70%, a Gold plan pays 80% and a Platinum plan pays 90%. Because a Gold plan covers more of the costs, the monthly premiums will be higher than the Bronze or Silver plans.
