ACHIA-Fed Enrollment Suspension Notice
CMS has implemented a nationwide enrollment suspension for all Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan (PCIP) programs. State-run PCIPs, including ACHIA-Fed, are required to stop processing applications that are received after March 2, 2013. ACHIA-Fed will use the postmark date as the received date to stay consistent with current enrollment policy. Applications postmarked on or before March 2, 2013, if found to be incomplete, will be subject to current deadlines for completion. ACHIA-Fed will continue providing coverage to the enrollees currently enrolled in the program. (This enrollment suspension is for the federal high risk pool (ACHIA-Fed) only. It does not affect the state high risk pool, ACHIA, which currently remains open to new enrollment.
Why is PCIP enrollment being suspended?
The PCIP is a temporary program for those locked out of the current insurance marketplace. The program has a limited amount of funding from Congress. Based on program experience and trends since the start of the program, PCIP enrollees have serious and expensive illnesses with significant and immediate health care needs. This suspension will help ensure that funds are available through 2013 to continuously cover people currently enrolled in PCIP.
Note: Enrollee portability is the sole exception to the enrollment suspension. If an individual was formerly enrolled in a PCIP during the past 6 months and is newly applying to another PCIP due to a change in residence, they will continue to be eligible to re-enroll in PCIP in the new state of residence after March 2.
