Pennie will work with you to explore you and your child’s coverage options to determine which programs you qualify for, as well as how to apply and enroll. Head to pennie.com to complete your application and understand your coverage options. For example, you may be able to enroll in coverage through Pennie with financial assistance to help lower the cost of coverage, while your child might qualify for Medicaid Assistance or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). If that’s the case, you will be able to apply and enroll in coverage through Pennie, while your child would be connected to free or low-cost coverage through Medical Assistance or CHIP.
Pennsylvania residents who are lawfully present in the United States may qualify for Medical Assistance. Individuals interested in healthcare coverage should apply online through www.COMPASS.state.pa.us. If the individual is determined ineligible for Medical Assistance, their information will be transferred to Pennie or to CHIP, which covers uninsured children under 19.
No matter how you apply, we are committed to ensuring your application gets to the right place so you can enroll in the health coverage that meets the needs of you and your family.
