Open Enrollment Pre-existing Condition Insurance Plan

The Pre-existing Condition Insurance Plan-Washington State (PCIP-WA) is the temporary federal high risk pool created as part of the new federal health reform law, the Affordable Care Act.

PCIP-WA provides a new health insurance option to eligible individuals with pre-existing conditions who have been uninsured for at least six months – with no waiting period.

The new plan, funded by the federal government, is temporary and will end January 1, 2014, when full health reform takes effect and people cannot be denied insurance due to a pre-existing medical condition. Enrollment is limited to available funding.

For more information, visit the plan’s website at https://www.wship.org/PCIP-WA/default.htm. Information brochures in English and Spanish, forms and benefit information are available on this website, or by calling 1-877-505-0514.
