"The Affordable Care Act's Essential Health Benefit provision requires specific procedures to be covered. Solstice plans go beyond the requirement, covering over 340 procedures," said Solstice COO Carlos Ferrera. "Our plans are affordable with low co-pays and our network of providers covers 39 counties, ensuring customers can find a provider at a location that's convenient and close."
