Pennsylvanians have one more week to shop for 2024 health insurance during the Affordable Care Act open enrollment period, with the final deadline now being January 19. The initial deadline of January 15 coincided with Martin Luther King Jr. Day, when most local and state offices are closed. This extension provides the final opportunity for residents to alter their insurance coverage through Pennie, the state’s Affordable Care Act marketplace, before many are automatically re-enrolled in their current plans.
Extended Deadline for Pennsylvanians to Select 2024 Health Insurance Plans
Good news for Pennsylvania residents seeking to enroll in 2024 health insurance during the current Affordable Care Act’s annual open enrollment period. Officials have announced an extension of the final enrollment deadline to Jan. 19, providing a little more time for individuals to select health plans.
The initial deadline of Jan. 15 coincided with the Martin Luther King Jr. Day holiday, when most local and state offices would be closed. The extension seeks to accommodate this and offer more residents a fair opportunity to enroll.
Devon Trolley, the Executive Director of Pennie, the state’s Affordable Care Act marketplace said, “We have seen a record number of Pennsylvanians enrolling through Pennie. Don’t miss out. If you wait until you need medical care, it will be too late.”
The new Jan. 19 deadline is the final opportunity for individuals to alter their insurance coverage through Pennie. It’s worth noting that many residents will be automatically re-enrolled if they take no action on their current plan.
