RE: The Federally-run Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan (PCIP)
The federally-run Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan (PCIP) will offer transitional coverage to those currently enrolled in PCIP who have not yet secured other health insurance from January 1, 2014 through January 31, 2014. This transitional coverage will allow PCIP enrollees more time to review Marketplace plan options and enroll in the coverage that best meets their needs. They will be notified by mail of this offer to extend their PCIP plan for an additional month, along with details about cost-sharing. Eligible enrollees can purchase PCIP transitional coverage by sending in a January premium payment; this will be the same monthly rate that they paid for December 2013.
