While health insurance is an expense, it can provide a lot of value by helping you and your family access the care you need to get or stay healthy. Before you select your plan, it’s a good idea to see if you are eligible for financial assistance with extended enhanced subsidies, which can lower the cost of your monthly health insurance premiums this year.1 You may qualify for financial help even if you weren’t eligible before through Pennie®, Pennsylvania’s health insurance marketplace.
