Choosing health insurance is one of the most important choices you can make to help protect the health and well-being of you and your family.
The official health insurance marketplace for Pennsylvania is called “Pennie”. Pennie allows customers to apply for health insurance plans as well as applying for financial assistance programs to help lower the cost of health coverage.
The insurance market can be broken down into Medicaid, CHIP (Children’s Health Insurance Program), Medicare, and commercial fully insured and self-insured. Depending on the market and type of insurance, there are different ways to obtain coverage, and there are many factors that you need to consider when deciding which path is best for you. Here at Silver Crest Insurance, we have a Pennie certified advisor who will provide you with all the information you need so you can make the best decision for your situation.
If you've recently lost your job-based health coverage, in the past 60 days, you qualify for a special enrollment period (SEP) and can shop for and enroll in a plan. You may qualify for financial help to pay for your plan, but only if you don't qualify for Medicaid Assistance.
