If you're unemployed you may be able to get an affordable health insurance plan through Pennie, with savings based on your income and household size. You may also qualify for free or low-cost coverage through Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).
When you fill out a Pennie application, you'll find out if you qualify for:
Health coverage through Pennie. You may qualify for premium tax credits and savings on deductibles, co-payments, and other out-of-pocket costs (CSR) based on your household size and income. Some people with low incomes may wind up paying very small premiums.
Other coverage options:
Medicaid (Medical Assistance or MA): Medicaid provides coverage to millions of Americans with limited incomes or if they have a disability.
Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP): CHIP provides coverage for children in families with incomes too high for Medicaid but too low to afford private insurance.
After you finish your Pennie application, you'll get an eligibility determination that tells you what kind of coverage you and others in your household qualify for.
