CaliforniaChoice offers employers and their employees access to dozens of Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum tier health plans from the state’s leading insurers.

It’s easy to see how all of the available CaliforniaChoice options available across the state break down by preferred provider organization (PPO), exclusive provider organization (EPO), health maintenance organization (HMO), health care services plan (HSP), Affordable Care Act metal tier, and carrier.

Another useful tool available from CaliforniaChoice is the Automated Choice Profiler, which can be accessed through the CaliforniaChoice website. This useful online resource gives prospective and current members the ability to analyze premiums, deductibles, co-pays, and co-insurance.  Users can view side-by-side plan comparisons based on cost, 5-Star quality ratings, and feedback from health plan members. The Automated Choice Profiler can help consumers get an estimated total cost of coverage that reflects ongoing, potential, or planned health care needs. It makes it easy to quickly evaluate all of your available plan options from CaliforniaChoice.

To learn more about the CaliforniaChoice Carrier Plan Design and Network Availability summary or Automated Choice Profiler, contact your employee benefits broker. If you don’t already have a broker, we’ll help you find a local CaliforniaChoice broker to speak with about your group’s health insurance needs.
