High-Risk Pool

The ACA expands upon the current state-based high-risk pool system. The ACA
requires the government to establish or issue contracts to establish a temporary PCIP (through 2013) to provide coverage for eligible individuals with pre-existing conditions by appropriating $5 billion to subsidize premiums. Eligibility is limited to individuals who have been uninsured for at least six months and have certain pre-existing conditions.
