If you are under the age of 30, Pennie will automatically include catastrophic plans in your plan shopping experience.
If you are over the age of 30, you will need to receive an exemption certificate number from healthcare.gov and enter your exemption information on the Pennie eligibility application to be able to see catastrophic plans in plan shopping.
Please call healthcare.gov at 1-800-318-2596 for assistance with completion and status of your hardship exemption. Healthcare.gov is only processing your exemption application. You will need to shop and enroll in coverage through Pennie once you have your exemption certificate number from healthcare.gov.
