Some Pennsylvania counties could see more competition and choices for coverage on the state’s health insurance marketplace during 2023, state officials announced.
This week, the Pennsylvania Insurance Department released the proposed 2023 requested rate filings for insurance coverage through Pennie. Final approved rates will be made public in the fall following a review and public comment period.
“As we navigate through the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic, Pennsylvania continues to have a strong and competitive insurance market,” said Acting Pennsylvania Insurance Commissioner Michael Humphreys.

ARPA subsidies helped reduce out-of-pocket premiums by an average of 9 percent in Pennsylvania, state officials said. HAP continues to advocate for the extension of these critical subsidies that have made health coverage more affordable for Pennsylvanians during the pandemic.
Last month, HAP sent a letter to Pennsylvania’s Congressional Delegation with a call to action to preserve the advanced premium tax credits that are set to expire this year.
