Pennsylvania Insurance Department and Pennie officials joined leaders at the Health Annex in Philadelphia recently to remind Pennsylvanians that the final deadline for 2023 health coverage through Pennie, Pennsylvania’s official online health insurance marketplace, is January 15. This marks the final opportunity to access affordable monthly premiums on quality health coverage that begins February 1.
Pennie operates Pennsylvania’s state-based marketplace in accordance with the Affordable Care Act. Amid rising costs of services, including healthcare services, Pennie strategizes to keep costs down by providing qualified customers with savings on their monthly cost of coverage. Savings on coverage is available to most Pennie customers. Nine out of 10 qualify and on average, receive over $500 a month in premium savings.
“If you need health insurance or are paying too much for what you have, Pennie is an option, offering access to critical healthcare services, including no-cost preventative care to catch things before they become problems,” said Pennie Executive Director Zachary Sherman. “With household budgets stretched thin, Pennie’s role in keeping the cost of health insurance low is of paramount importance. Go to pennie.com to check out your options and enroll by January 15.”
