Catastrophic Plan

Many young adults under the age of 30 are concerned about the premiums within the metal level exchange plans, and are considering paying a penalty instead of purchasing a health plan. To discourage this and get the younger healthier individuals into the health exchange risk pool, a Catastrophic Plan was created for those meeting certain criteria. These individuals must be under the age of 30 and/or are able to prove they are financially unable to obtain affordable health coverage. To prove financial hardship the cost of coverage must exceed 8% of their annual household income.

Plan Benefits for the Catastrophic Plan:

  • Catastrophic plans will not be eligible for subsidies
  • Three primary care visits with no deductible to meet
  • Preventive Care covered for no charge

These plans will be designed solely for catastrophic coverage, and while they will offer the essential health services and basic preventive care after a deductible, things like doctor visits and prescriptions will be excluded. The maximum out of pocket and deductible is the same on catastrophic plans; $6,400 for individuals, and $12,800 for families. Though the plan is limited in day to day coverage the plan is intended to protect young adults from facing financial disaster in the event of a medical emergency. The Catastrophic plan may be the best option for many just starting out on their own and not in need of extensive coverage.
