Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan (PCIP)
- have been uninsured for at least six months
- have a pre-existing condition
- have been denied coverage (or offered insurance without coverage of the pre-existing condition) by a private insurance company.
This program will provide coverage until 2014 when you will have access to affordable health insurance choices through an Exchange, and you can no longer be discriminated against based on a pre-existing condition.
