Enrollment basics

Shop and compare plans, gather necessary documents and sign up online with Pennie.

What is open enrollment?

This is the yearly period when you can buy health insurance. If you don’t enroll during this time, you can’t sign up until the next one, except in limited instances, called special enrollment periods. Pennsylvania’s Open Enrollment Period runs from November 1, 2020 to January 15, 2021

Why do I need to renew my health insurance plan?

If your current healthcare.gov plan is still available and you’ve had no major changes, you may be able to keep it. It is still important to compare plans and prices ever year to make sure you are getting the best health plan available. Pennie allows you to easily shop and compare, as well as to find out if you qualify for financial assistance.

What is special enrollment?

This is when you can enroll outside of open enrollment if you’ve experienced certain qualifying life events, including losing health coverage, moving, getting married or having a baby.
