Frequently asked questions

What is Pennie?

Pennie is Pennsylvania’s official destination for shopping for quality health insurance plans and accessing financial assistance, if eligible.  Think of it this way:  If health and dental insurance are the groceries, Pennie is the grocery store. 

What is open enrollment?

Open enrollment is Nov 1st, 2020, to January 15, 2021. During this time period, anyone living legally in Pennsylvania can apply for health insurance through Pennie. Individuals with qualifying life events can enroll at any time of the year.

Who can help me enroll?

We have several options to assist you in enrolling in a health insurance plan. If completing the enrollment process by yourself, our Pennie Customer Service team will be ready to help at any point. Once it’s time to shop, if you would like further assistance, you can choose between a Pennie Assister or a Pennie-certified Broker.

What if I used to get my health insurance through healthcare.gov?

For plan year 2021, Pennsylvania is transitioning from HealthCare.gov to its own state-based health insurance marketplace called Pennie. Pennie is the official destination for shopping and purchasing quality health insurance plans and the only place to access financial assistance, if eligible.  Pennie will be live at the beginning of the 2021 Open Enrollment Period which runs from November 1, 2020 through January 15, 2021.

Where can I learn more about financial assistance and if I qualify?

Based on your income, you may qualify for financial assistance that will lower your monthly premium or your out of pocket expenses. See our page on financial assistance.

 

What if I need to modify my coverage for 2020?

If you purchased health insurance from HealthCare.gov and need to make a change between now and December 31, 2020, please visit HealthCare.gov.  If you want to purchase coverage that will begin on January 1, 2021, you can enroll in coverage through Pennie starting on November 1, 2020.
