Healthy PA - Pennsylvania's Medicaid Expansion

Pennsylvania's expansion of Medicaid, known as "Healthy PA," was approved in August 2014.  If you were previously not eligible for either Medicaid or the Health Insurance Marketplace, you may be eligible for Healthy PA.  Enrollment begins on December 1, 2014 for benefits that will become available on January 1, 2015.

To apply, visit www.compass.state.pa.us or call (866) 550-4355.

If you have problems applying online or over the phone, you can ask for help.  You can get help in-person and over the phone from a community group in your area. Call (855) 486-9331 to get help applying for Medical Assistance from a community group. If your application is turned down, Philadelphia Legal Assistance may be able to help.
