How much does the Essential Plan cost?

The Essential Plan has no premium, no deductible, and starts paying for health care costs right away. You might have to pay a small amount for some services depending on your household’s exact income, but the costs are low (like $150 for a hospital stay).

Even though the income qualifications for the Essential Plan depend on family size, you have to be at least 19 years old to qualify. Children can’t be covered by the Essential Plan because they’re eligible for other health insurance programs like Children’s Medicaid and Child Health Plus.
