Statewide, Pa. − November 9, 2020 − Pennsylvania Senate Democrats today announced a series of virtual health care enrollment events to help constituents through the process of selecting an insurance plan through the new Pennsylvania state exchange, Pennie.

The Senators are offering 15 events primarily in a remote setting, with the utmost consideration of COVID-19 safety. Constituents will be able to make appointments for Zoom consultations with health insurance navigators online. Senators will also host virtual townhalls with the PA Insurance Department and navigators to answer general questions in a safe, remote group setting.

This is the first year that Pennsylvanians will be using a state exchange to purchase insurance instead of the federal ACA exchange. Pennie will be open for new and updated enrollments from November 1 to January 15 and subsidies are available to the many state residents who will qualify.

Constituents are reminded to have a few pieces of information handy as they go through the enrollment process: documentation to verify your annual income (a W-2 or paystub) and a driver’s license or other government-issued photo ID.
