​Changes to 2021 Health Insurance Open Enrollment

Meet Pennie!

For plan year 2021, Pennsylvania is transitioning from to its own state-based health insurance marketplace called Pennie. Pennie is PA's official destination for shopping and purchasing quality health insurance plans and the only place to access financial assistance, if eligible.

Pennie can help customers who have used in the past, individuals and families without access to employer coverage, as well as uninsured Pennsylvanians. The 2021 Open Enrollment Period for Pennsylvanians began November 1, 2020 and ends January 15, 2021.
