PCIP Update

We received an update from MRMIB Executive Director Lesley Cummings yesterday on the status of California’s Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Program (PCIP).

MRMIB is in the final stages of negotiations of contracts with PCIP’s two vendors (MAXIMUS and Health Now). Only once those are signed can coverage begin. Currently, MRIMB is running and testing internal systems to make sure everything is working so that enrollment happens smoothly.

According to Ms. Cummings, PCIP coverage is estimated to begin on or before October 7th — next Thursday.

But MRMIB is accepting applications right now for those who think they might be eligible.

Read our previous blog post on PCIP for a description of eligibility criteria and how the program will work.
