Pennie, state-based health insurance, deadlines are extended


Pennsylvania – Pennie – Pennsylvania’s NEW health insurance marketplace – has extended its Open Enrollment deadline. If you still need to enroll in health insurance for 2021, you have the opportunity to do so now.

There are two enrollment deadlines:

  • For health coverage starting January 1, you must enroll in an insurance option by 11:59 PM ET on December 22.
  • For health coverage starting February 1, you must enroll in an insurance option by January 15.

Pennie replaces the federal health insurance marketplace for Pennsylvanians. If you previously received coverage through Healthcare.Gov, you will now receive coverage through Pennie.

To learn more about Pennie and to shop for coverage, visit https://pennie.com.

Customers will find self-service resources at pennie.com, and Pennie’s customers service center at 1-844-844-8040 is ready to help at any point and can connect customers to other unbiased in-person or virtual assistance.




PA Senator Bob Casey has offered to help anyone who needs assistance navigating the website or understanding how to enroll in coverage through Pennie.


If you need assistance with any part of the enrollment process, Pennie offers resources and care representatives who can help. Additionally, my staff is ready and available to help with any concerns you may have. Simply contact me through my website.

Now more than ever, quality health insurance is critical for all Pennsylvania families. Do not miss your opportunity to enroll in coverage for 2021.
