Pennsylvania continues to move forward with its plan to open a state-based health insurance exchange and discontinue using the Federally-Facilitated Marketplace (FFM), also known as HealthCare.gov.
The new exchange will officially be named Pennie. And, consumers will no longer be able to purchase or renew their insurance through HealthCare.gov.
Please note the following important information for brokers.
Final decisions have been made on Special Enrollment Periods (SEPs) and binder payments.
Marketing spending for Pennie will include emphasis on the counties of Philadelphia, Delaware, Chester and Montgomery.
Direct communication from both the FFM and the State-Based Exchange to consumers begins mid-October. The nature of the messaging is still undetermined.
In addition to pre-registering now, you must pass certification by November 30 to be eligible to enroll consumers as your customers. Additional information on this will be released in September.
TAKE ACTION TODAY You must pre-register by August 30—or your customers will be disassociated from you, and you will lose your commissions on them.
If you haven’t already, please be sure to pre-register immediately. It only takes a few minutes to take this step to protect your book of business.
