HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) — The Wolf Administration announced Tuesday that Pa. residents are now eligible for healthcare savings through Pennie, the states’ healthcare provider, thanks to the American Rescue Plan signed into law by President Biden in March.

Pennie is a healthcare provider that provides plans at a lower cost for Pennsylvania residents who don’t have other access to healthcare. The recently passed American Rescue Plan provides significant savings for individuals, including ones who already have plans with Pennie.

The savings are available to many individuals and families in the state, and some will even receive as low as a zero-dollar deductible. Even families earning upwards of $100,000 can see a discount. Most people will see the savings automatically, but those are didn’t apply for subsidies in the past will have to submit a new application.

Anyone interested in seeing if they’re eligible for a discount can do so at Pennie’s website here, or call 1-844-844-8040.
