Pennie Help

Pennie is the State-Based Health Insurance Exchange replacing Healthcare.gov in the State of Pennsylvania. Beware of “impersonator” websites that appear in your search results.

Pennsylvania residents now determine eligibility and enroll through Pennie.com instead of Healthcare.gov. If you previously had a Healthcare.gov account, your info SHOULD have migrated over to Pennie. For our long-time clients, we in most cases are still attached to service your health insurance needs, year-round! Our help and support is at no cost to you – the price is the same as it is on Pennie.com. We are paid by the carriers to assist clients and we are ONLY paid if we are your designated broker in your account.

For those who are not currently a client and wish to work with us, please see below instructions on how to attach us to your account, so that we can be your broker. You can also call 1-844-844-4440 to make sure you are still attached or to request one of us as your broker:


Joseph L. Covell – NPN#: 16623825

Robyn Barto – NPN#: 18726174


Pennie.com is not meant for everyone. If your income (Modified Adjusted Gross Income based on your Federal Income Tax filing) is too low or high to qualify for the “Advance Premium Tax Credit (APTC)”, known as a “subsidy”, you may be better-off applying directly through the insurance carrier. We can help you do this via our secure carrier portals. If your income is too low to qualify, you may explore eligibility for PA State’s Medicaid program. We can help or direct you to the right place, no matter your situation! We do not charge any fees for our time or service!
