For 2022 health plans, Pennsylvania open enrollment has ended. However, you may still be able to purchase health insurance for this year if you qualify for a special enrollment period. For example, if you’ve recently lost your job or income due to the COVID-19 crisis or for any other reason, you might qualify for a 60-day special enrollment period that will allow you to sign up for a new health insurance plan.

To get covered, you can go directly to the online health insurance marketplace for Pennsylvania. If you need personalized help, you can reach out to an enrollment assistant. Most enrollment helpers are working remotely during the COVID crisis.

Getting Personalized Help with Enrollment

In Pennsylvania, if you need help understanding your options for coverage under Obamacare or signing up for a plan, you can get assistance from a trained enrollment assister or from a health insurance broker or agent. Both are free.

A certified enrollment assister can explain your options, answer your questions, and help you apply for the plan you choose -- but they can't recommend a specific plan for you.

Licensed health insurance agents or brokers can also help you understand your health care coverage options under Obamacare. Unlike government-trained assisters and counselors, brokers and agents are allowed to suggest the best plan for you. Being allowed to "cut to the chase" this way can help make the process more efficient for you and take less time.

To quickly reach a licensed Pennsylvania insurance broker who can help you evaluate insurance plans and choose a plan that's appropriate for your situation, you can call 800-943-6832. (We receive advertising income from the licensed brokers who offer their services through this telephone number.)
