Open Enrollment for Subsidized Healthcare Begins Today

The open Enrollment period for Pennsylvanians to apply, compare, and enroll in subsidized health coverage has started.

Pennsylvania State | Tuesday, November 1, marks the start of the 2023 Open Enrollment period for Pennsylvanians to apply, compare, and enroll in health coverage through Pennie, the commonwealth’s official online health insurance marketplace.

Pennie’s Open Enrollment Period runs from November 1 to January 15, 2023, with December 15 marking the deadline to select a coverage that will begin New Year’s Day. For those enrolling between December 16 and January 15, coverage will begin on February 1, 2023.

“Obtaining affordable, quality health care has never been easier in Pennsylvania thanks to Pennie’s one-stop-shop design,” Gov. Wolf said. “Through the online state-based system, Pennsylvanians have instant access to a variety of resources to help them understand how to apply, shop, and enroll in health coverage. They also have access to people who can help them through the process right in their own community. My administration is extremely proud to have signed legislation introducing Pennie in July 2019, with the goal of improving access for Pennsylvanians to secure the care they deserve, ultimately giving more people the opportunity to live healthier lives.”

Pennie is designed to help citizens take advantage of savings on 2023 coverage. 90% of users on Pennie qualify for financial savings and are eligible for subsidized premiums on their monthly health insurance. Additionally, 40% of Pennie users pay less than $75 a month for coverage.

Any resident of the commonwealth can visit to view coverage with affordable premiums. Pennie also offers a comparison tool to quickly quote each plan and see its potential savings before going further in the application process. However, those interested must do so before January 15th.
