Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan (PCIP)
Eligible residents of Michigan can apply for coverage through the state’s Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan program, currently being established.

To qualify for coverage:

  • You must be a citizen or national of the United States or residing in the United States legally.

  • You must have been uninsured for at least the last six months before you apply.

  • You must have a pre-existing condition or have been denied coverage because of your health condition.

The Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan will cover a broad range of health benefits, including primary and specialty care, hospital care, and prescription drugs.  All covered benefits are available for you, even if it’s to treat a pre-existing condition.
