On April 24, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced that participants in the federal high-risk insurance pool can qualify for a 60-day special enrollment period beginning May 1 if they have not already purchased coverage through the online exchanges. The extension will allow them to enroll in coverage through the Federally-facilitated Marketplace (FFM). A notice on the Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan (PCIP) website says these individuals will have until June 30 to enroll in a plan through Healthcare.gov or their state-run marketplace, with benefits effective May 1. The PCIP program will close April 30. These attached resources from CMS will help you to serve PCIP clients:
