Depending on a customer’s household income, they may qualify to enroll in coverage through a new Special Enrollment Period and receive financial assistance offered through Pennie!

If a customer’s income is equal to or below 150% Federal Poverty Level (see table below), they can enroll in coverage through Pennie at any time of the year.

New enrollees will need to take these steps to enroll in coverage under this qualifying life event:

  1. Submit a new Pennie application 
  2. If they meet the criteria in the table below, a Special Enrollment Period (SEP) will automatically open! 
  3. Once the SEP opens, they will have 60-days to enroll in a plan through Pennie. Once enrolled, coverage will begin the start of the following month.

For other family sizes, please to this link.

Starting in June, this QLE will be available for existing, qualified Pennie customers who wish to change their plan.  At that time, we will provide you with an update, detailing the process and steps customers will need to take to access the QLE.
