Pennsylvania: Pennie posts record-breaking enrollment with more time left to #GetCovered

via Pennie, Pennsylvania's state-based ACA exchange:

Harrisburg, PA – 12/19/23 – Following Pennie’s first Open Enrollment deadline, a record number of over 405,000 Pennsylvanians enrolled through PA’s official health insurance marketplace ( with coverage starting January 1st.

For anyone who missed the first deadline, there is still time to apply, shop, and enroll in a 2024 health plan for coverage beginning February 1st.  Open Enrollment is the only time of year to shop for 2024 coverage, and Pennsylvanians must enroll by January 15th. Waiting until an illness or injury strikes will be too late.

The record high enrollment numbers are a promising step toward Pennie’s mission of expanding access to affordable health coverage. Pennie is the only place where Pennsylvanians can get financial savings to reduce the cost of coverage and care. Currently, nine in 10 enrollees qualify and save more than $500 a month on average.

The recent success is due in part to Pennie’s collaboration with Pennsylvania’s Department of Human Services to ensure individuals who are no longer eligible for Medicaid can find affordable and quality health coverage through Pennie.

Pennsylvanians seeking health coverage should visit now for health coverage beginning February 1st.  Plans and prices change every year, so Pennsylvanians who need coverage should review their options even if they have looked before. Pennie Customer Service is open from 8 am to 7 pm and can be reached at 1-844-844-8040.
