​​What is The Health Benefit Exchange? 

~ The Health Benefit Exchange (HBE) is where individuals,                                                                   families, and small businesses can shop online for health                                                               insurance plans. They are a state-based health insurance                                                               market, which is also called exchanges.

~ The insurance plans can be compared side-by-side and an online calculator used to find         the best deal. Another feature of the HBE is that depending upon a person’s income,               there are some up-front discounts in the form of tax credits to help pay for the premiums     and some out-of-pocket assistance too.

~ As of April, 2014, over 7 million people had a selected health plan through health                    insurance marketplaces. 

~ Four Types of "metal plans" 

  • Bronze
  • Silver
  • Gold
  • Platinum

                                                                                                                                                                    ~ There are several choices among the plans with higher and lower deductibles, co-pays,           and higher or lower premiums. This also informs applicants if they qualify for premium         discounts and subsidies for out-of-pocket expenses.
