Mississippi Health Insurance Exchange – What Plans will be Available?

All plans offered through the Mississippi Health Insurance Exchange will meet the ACA definition of a Qualified Health Plan (QHP). The plans will be offered by level of coverage for essential health benefits (EHB), to allow consumers to compare plans on an “apples to apples” basis.

The four “metal” levels are: Bronze (plan pays 60%), Silver (plan pays 70%), Gold (plan pays 80%), and Platinum (plan pays 90%).

Specific insurance carriers and plan rates will go through a formal review process, and are expected this summer.
