Pennie’s open enrollment period runs through Jan. 15

DANVILLE, Pa. – Healthcare coverage has never been more affordable — or essential — and Pennsylvanians have another opportunity to find a plan that works for them during Pennie’s open enrollment period.

From now through Jan. 15, individuals and families can shop for health insurance on the state-based marketplace for the upcoming year. The American Rescue Plan (ARP) has resulted in unprecedented financial aid for those enrolled in coverage through Pennie, with 9 out of 10 qualifying for help to lower, or even eliminate, their monthly premium.

“Whether you’ve moved off your parents’ health plan, started your own business or lost your employer coverage, getting healthcare coverage is easy and affordable through Pennie,” said Kurt J. Wrobel, Geisinger Health Plan (GHP) president and executive vice president of insurance operations for Geisinger. “Health insurance brings you peace of mind, but GHP members get more than coverage. With access to benefits like fitness discounts and health coaches, our members live healthier lives.”

GHP offers a variety of affordable and flexible coverage options with low copay options in 42 counties through Pennie. Members have access to quality care, close to home, from both Geisinger and non-Geisinger providers, and concierge-type customer care.

Enrolling is easy with a GHP representative available to help every step of the way. For more information about GHP coverage options available through Pennie, call 866-325-8108 or visit GeisingerMarketplace.com/LearnMore.

Additionally, you and your family may qualify for income-based plans through Pennsylvania’s Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) and GHP Family, GHP’s Medicaid plan. If eligible, you can apply at any time throughout the year.

CHIP provides low-cost health insurance to all uninsured Pennsylvania children and teens, regardless of household income. GHP’s CHIP program, GHP Kids, provides complete medical coverage, as well as dental and vision insurance, prescriptions, vaccinations and other benefits. Coverage is available at low or no cost, depending on income.

For more information about GHP Kids, call 570-214-9138 or visit Go.Geisinger.org/GHPKids.

GHP Family provides healthcare coverage to Pennsylvania residents who qualify for Medical Assistance and who live in the GHP Family service area. GHP Family offers no monthly premium and many services are available at no cost or require only a small copay.
