Today, Zane Benefits, the #1 Online Health Benefits Solution, published a new information on the PCIP coverage extension through June 2014.
According to Zane Benefits’ website, on April 24, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced it will once again extend transitional coverage to those currently enrolled in the Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan (PCIP) until June 30, 2014. PCIP has been the federal health insurance risk pool, created in 2010 by health reform.
This is the third extension of PCIP, giving participants additional time to transition to a guaranteed-issue Exchange or private health insurance plan.
Zane Benefits’ website says that CMS's announced the latest extension in a bulletin, saying the additional extension provides a “60-day special enrollment period due to exceptional circumstances for individuals remaining in the program who have not found new coverage that begins on May 1.”
