California’s PCIP: How It Will Work

As you know, in late June the legislature passed and the Governor signed SB 227 (Alquist) and AB 1887 (Villines), sister bills that established the new, federally-funded, state-administered high risk pool.

Since then, the Managed Risk Medical Insurance Board has been working hard to implement the new high risk pool, officially called the Pre-Existing Conditions Insurance Plan (PCIP).

Last Thursday, I had a chance to sit down with MRMIB’s Chief Deputy Director Janette Casillas to discuss the details of how PCIP will work and when we can expect it to be up and running.
