Pennie makes insurance make sense

Let’s start with the basics

What’s health insurance all about?

Who can get coverage?

PA residents who are citizens, U.S. nationals, or have a qualified immigration status can apply and enroll in health coverage through Pennie. Not covered through work or another program like Medicaid? You can find the coverage that’s right for you through Pennie.

Who receives financial assistance?

Your family size and annual income will be used to determine if you are eligible for financial assistance. Typically, a person estimated to earn less than $51,000 a year – or a family of four estimated to earn less than $105,000 – would likely qualify for financial assistance to lower the cost of your monthly payment and/or out-of-pocket expenses.

Why get coverage?

Accidents and illnesses happen. Health insurance gives you peace of mind during uncertain times, such as the COVID-19 pandemic. Plus, some preventive services are free to help keep you and your family healthy.
