New Subsidies Make Health Insurance More Affordable
ARP funds provide new help for those who need coverage, but a deadline looms.
Pennie is Pennsylvania’s official destination for shopping for quality health insurance plans and accessing financial assistance. If you are not covered through work or another program like Medicaid, you can find the coverage that’s right for you through Pennie. The recently passed America Rescue Plan include subsidies that result in significant additional savings for Pennsylvanians shopping for coverage and those already enrolled through Pennie. 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.
This is the yearly period when you can buy health insurance. Pennsylvania residents can apply and enroll in health coverage through Pennie. If you do not enroll during this time, you cannot sign up until the next one, except in limited instances called special enrollment periods. Pennie’s Open Enrollment Period closes on Dec. 15 for coverage starting January 1, but you can sign up until January 15 for coverage that starts in February.
