Migrant workers who have a H-2A visa status are eligible to enroll in coverage through Pennie. To qualify for Pennie, your primary residence must be in Pennsylvania. Health insurance coverage with Pennie can help pay for your health needs such as illnesses and injuries while you are away from home and working seasonally in Pennsylvania. .
As a migrant worker, if you move residences frequently for your job within Pennsylvania, you can still be eligible to enroll in Pennie. You will need to update your Pennie account information each time you move home residences to ensure you’re receiving the correct eligibility for financial assistance. Your health insurance monthly premium rate may change based on your home address location.
To show your eligibility for Pennie, you will be asked to upload a picture or scanned copy in your Pennie application portal of one of your immigration documents showing your visa code. For example, you may upload a picture or copy of the US Visa immigration page in your passport with entrance code H-2A for migrant workers.
