Clear Choice Plans

For plan year 2022, most individual health insurance plans in Maine will use one of several “Clear Choice” plan designs. Each Clear Choice plan design will have a standard cost-sharing design, meaning they have the same deductible, copays, and co-insurance for medical services, no matter which health insurance company offers the plan.

When comparing each Clear Choice plan among health insurance companies, you can focus on the provider network available and the premium cost, knowing that the level of coverage provided is the same. All plans using these structures will include “Clear Choice” or “CC” in the plan name.

The Clear Choice plan designs being offered on CoverME.gov in 2022 are:

  • Bronze - $7,500 deductible
  • Bronze - $8,700 deductible
  • Bronze - $7,000 deductible, HSA compatible
