Announced at the Sept ember 9 Pennie Community Workgroup, new system enhancements will be available beginning October 2022. Pennie plans to pilot a Live Chat feature and add organ donor and voter registration information to the end of the Pennie enrollment application. The Pennie system will also use current monthly income when assessing potential eligibility for Medicaid and CHIP. On previous applications, yearly income was used to determine eligibility. This change will result in a more accurate assessment of likely eligibility due to fluctuating income. To listen to the recording or view slides, click here.
