The California Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan (PCIP) has doubled in size in the past year.

The state's Managed Risk Medical Insurance Board (MRMIB) has reported on PCIP program performance in documents posted in connection with a recent board meeting.

Congress added the PCIP program to PPACA in an effort to provide immediate relief for uninsured people with health problems.

PCIP is supposed to provide comprehensive health coverage for people with health problems for a price similar to the price of ordinary individual commercial health coverage.
