Description:  Pennie is the official health insurance marketplace for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania – where Pennsylvanians can apply, shop, and enroll in health insurance from top insurance companies, and qualify for financial assistance to reduce monthly premiums and cost-sharing. 

Visit for more information.

Pennie seeks a qualifying Lead Contractor (“Lead Contractor”) to subcontract and manage a network of no less than five and no more than eight Regional Organizations (“Regional Organizations”) responsible for delivering outreach and in-person assistance to help Pennsylvanians enroll in quality health coverage.

The enrollment assistance efforts under this project would be expected to align to the significantly higher enrollment activity that occurs leading up to and during the annual Open Enrollment Period (November 1 through January 15 each year) and the relatively lower but steady enrollments during the rest of the year through Special Enrollment Periods for qualifying life events.

This Request for Proposals is only for the Lead Contractor Contract.  All those interested in being a Regional Organization or supporting Pennie efforts as a community-based partner entity, will have an opportunity to provide more information about their interest in working with Pennie by submitting a form that will be provided via a link in the Request for Proposal Solicitation when it is published.
