HeathcareForPA.com is brought to you by the PA Senate Democrats

As you’ve likely heard, there have been some changes to the ACA enrollment process this year. The most important changes include:

The open enrollment period is November 1 through December 15 (in the past, open enrollment ended January 31.)

Healthcare.gov will down for maintenance early morning on November 1 (to make final preparations ahead of the start of open enrollment) and each Sunday from 12am to 12pm ET except on December 15. During any website downtime, HealthCare.gov will be unavailable for consumers to select a plan and enroll in coverage.

Funding for open enrollment and consumer help has been reduced. That’s why the PA Senate Democrats created this website – to help folks like you navigate the enrollment process and ensure Pennsylvanians are covered.

There is a concern that the shorter enrollment period and the reduced funding for open enrollment will decrease the number of people signing up for health insurance.  This year, the PA Insurance Dept. recorded an increase of 3.5% between enrollment from 2016 to 2017. We want to continue with this success. Please share this website with friends and family and direct them to Healthcare.gov to sign up for health insurance for 2019.


The PA Senate Democrats are embarking on an Affordable Care Act Mobile Enrollment Tour.
The tour will make stops throughout Pennsylvania in an effort to make sure everyone has health insurance in 2019!
