Health Insurance Open Enrollment on Pennie Is in Full Swing

Representatives from the Pennsylvania Insurance Department, Pennie, and PACHC celebrated the beginning of health insurance marketplace open enrollment at a press event at Sadler Health Center in Carlisle. The event was to remind Pennsylvanians that Pennie, the commonwealth’s official online health insurance marketplace, is now open for all Pennsylvanians to apply, compare plans, and enroll in high-quality health coverage. This annual Open Enrollment period is from Nov. 1, 2022, to Jan 15, 2023, with customers needing to choose a plan by Dec. 15 for Jan. 1, 2023 coverage. Customers can take advantage of substantial savings on 2023 coverage created by the American Rescue Plan and extended by the Inflation Reduction Act. Nine out of 10 Pennie customers qualify for financial savings, meaning most are eligible for subsidized monthly premiums on their health insurance. Currently, nearly 40% of Pennie customers pay less than $75 a month. Amidst rising inflation, Pennie helps keep insurance costs down, and Open Enrollment is the opportunity for Pennsylvanians to protect their health and wallets by getting the coverage and care they need.
