Arizona's Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan Goes Live

The new federal healthcare reform law may be able to help people with complicated medical conditions under the newly created "Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan (PCIP)" which is designed to help people with pre-existing conditions find health insurance. (A pre-existing condition is a condition, disability or illness--including mental illness-- that you have before you enrolled in a health plan.)

In Arizona, the Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan (administered by HHS)went live this week. In order to qualify for the program, individuals need to have been uninsured for at least six months, have been denied health coverage because of a health condition, and be a US citizen (or living here legally). The monthly premiums for the Arizona PCIP range from $323/month for people 0-34 years old to $688/month for people over 55. There's a $2,500 annual deductible and a $25 copayment for doctor visits after that. There are also some medicine co-pay costs. The person's out-of-pocket costs are capped at $5,950 per year. For details, please visit the Pre-existing Condition Insurance Plan Website and Apply on the HHS web site.
