CA PCIP Enrollment at 6,000

By on | No Comments

Question: What is the enrollment in CA PCIP?

Answer: The California Preexisting Conditions Insurance Plan (PCIP) has enrolled 6,000 members as of the end of 2011. PCIP is a temporary, federally funded insurance plan for US Citizens who have been uninsured for six months or more and have been denied coverage because of a preexisting condition. The program is scheduled to end January 2014 when insurers will be required to accept all applicants without charging higher rates. California has been allotted $347 million in federal funding for PCIP in 2012. The money isn’t going as far planned because the individuals who have enrolled have filed more claims than expected. This pent-up demand for health care among the uninsured is a cautionary tale that the Exchange must heed.
