The Obama administration has pushed back the deadline of the Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan (PCIP) for the third time in the past four months, allowing users to continue with the coverage until April 30.
The delay was noted only with an update Friday on the federal PCIP website as opposed to previous delays’ announcements via HHS spokesmen.
“Enrollees in the federally-run Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan, who have not yet found new health insurance coverage through the Marketplace, can purchase an additional month of PCIP coverage through April 30, 2014, while they continue their search. “Time is running out,” the announcement warned. “You need to act to avoid a lapse in coverage. Open enrollment through the Marketplace for this year ends on March 31.”
