The Affordable Care Act (ACA also known as Obama Care) has mandated that individual insurance be categorized in 5 different levels: platinum, gold, silver, bronze, and, in some cases, certain people may qualify for catastrophic plans. All individual plans offered from all insurance carriers fall into one of these categories. New Mexico insurance carriers participating in ACA plan offerings are BC/BS, New Mexico Health Connections and Molina (primarily a Centennial Care Plan).
