At Primary Health Network, we understand the importance of accessibility when it comes to healthcare. In addition to having access to primary care and specialty services, having affordable health insurance coverage is a crucial component of healthcare in the United States. Those who are uninsured are less likely to seek care due to out-of-pocket costs, and oftentimes fall behind on preventive care screenings such as annual check-ups.
Since 2014, Primary Health Network has offered free enrollment assistance to those in need of health insurance through the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Assisters offer non-biased help with the online application process to help consumers enroll in a plan that meets their needs. Recently, Pennsylvania opted to remove their insurance plans from the Federal Marketplace and begin offering coverage through a state-based exchange. PHN has received a grant from the Pennsylvania Association of Community Health Centers (PACHC) to continue providing enrollment assistance through the newly formed Pennsylvania Health Insurance Exchange Authority.
The PHN Exchange Assister will continue to enroll consumers in health insurance plans through various outreach methods, including in-person, remote, virtual and over the phone assistance. Assistance is available at no cost; for more information, please call 1-855-456-5685.
As America’s healthcare system continues to evolve and we feel the impact of COVID-19 on employer-based coverage, PHN remains committed to assisting consumers to ensure they have the health insurance they need. Additionally, PHN offers the Sliding Fee Discount Scale to all income-eligible uninsured or underinsured patients, based on annual household income for most of our services. For more information, please visit our Sliding Fee page.
*Please note that Primary Health Network does not offer health insurance plans. All plans are provided and managed by the Pennsylvania Health Insurance Exchange Authority. While enrollment assistance is offered at no cost, the cost of health insurance plans varies based on provider, coverage levels, and other factors.
