Nation Hits Lowest Uninsured Rate Ever

With more than 14 million people enrolled in coverage nationwide through the 2023 health insurance marketplace Open Enrollment period, this marks the nation’s lowest uninsured rate ever at 8%. Open Enrollment began Nov. 1 and ends Jan. 15. Pennie, Pennsylvania’s health insurance marketplace, has seen more than 332,000 enrollments as of Nov. 30. Historically, the largest number of enrollments are attributed to auto-renewals from existing customers. Pennie-certified enrollment assisters at community health centers are enrolling customers in person, telephonically, and virtually to meet the need for unbiased, free assistance. New enhancements on the Pennie website, such as the customer service chat feature and additional income calculation questions, enable consumers to get questions answered sooner and pinpoint variations in monthly income.
