Insurance Enrollment Begins November 1 for PA Marketplace Plans on Pennie.com
TIOGA COUNTY, PA—Beginning November 1, Pennsylvania residents can enroll in new healthcare coverage or switch healthcare plans on the Pennsylvania insurance exchange marketplace, known as “Pennie.” Open enrollment runs November 1 through January 15, 2023 on Pennie.com, but patients must enroll by December 15 for coverage to begin at the start of the new year (January 1).
If you need help finding a health plan that’s a good fit for you and your family or help navigating Pennie’s online marketplace, the Laurel Health Centers are here to help with free enrollment counseling and support. Counseling is open to everyone; you do not have to be a Laurel Health patient to use this free service.
“We assist patients with understanding and comparing their options for coverage on the state marketplace and/or insurance affordability programs like Medicaid and CHIP,” explains Carla Westlake, Laurel Health’s certified application counselor, who was recently recognized with the APEX Award for her outstanding work with patients by the Pennsylvania Association of Community Health Centers. “Our goal is to help everyone find a health plan that is a good fit. Anyone planning to enroll in health insurance this fall or who is currently uninsured / underinsured and looking for the right affordable coverage is welcome to make an appointment.”
