The coverage will be split into four initial categories of bronze, silver, gold, and platinum. The gold and platinum plans will typically be more expensive, although there are subsidies available for families within certain income brackets.
The state has set a goal to make coverage available to as many people as possible, so help will be available to guide you through the process.

Based on what your family might need as far as healthcare, you can work with a licensed agent to sort through the details to select the coverage is optimized for your needs. Rest assured that the variety of options means that there’s a plan out there that meets your budget and provides the insurance that you need.
