If you are denied eligibility for Medicaid or CHIP after applying for coverage through Pennie during Open Enrollment, and the Open Enrollment period has ended, don’t worry! A Special Enrollment Period will automatically be opened for you to come back to Pennie to enroll in coverage. Just log into your Pennie account and continue to select the right health coverage for your needs and budget.
- Customers must enroll in plan within 60 days of their Medicaid/CHIP denial.
- Coverage will become effective once you have paid your first month’s premium.
- Need a different start date? If you originally applied through Pennie contact us and request that your coverage start be moved back to the date it would have started if Pennie had originally determined you eligible for a plan through Pennie (provided complete premium payment is made for the retroactive period).
