    about the application process?

    I found it to be very, very simple.

    Filled out a simple application online.  I think it was a total of 2 pages that asked just very basic information.  This application could also be downloaded and mailed in or there was a phone number you could call.

    I made a copy of my rejection letter from BCBS and sent it in.

    That's it.  

    Frankly, it couldn't be easier.

    Have you filled out the application for the fed program, lushboi?  If not, you really need to before calling the process a nightmare.  

    Comments like yours may prevent eligible people from going through the very simple process.

    I wish people in Florida knew as much about Rick Scott as they do about Casey Anthony.

    •  This was last Fall (0+ / 0-)

      When the program was first rolled out. Had to apply to a few insurance companies in order to get the Pre-existing condition rider/denial of coverage documentation. PCIP rejected my application because they said that the private insurance had been accepted, so another 6-month wait period would be required. Argued up and down the new service chain with personnel that were still not trained properly on the program rules. Went through a lengthy appeal process. Finally got the PCIP insurance card, but then had a horrible time finding any doctors that would accept it. By the time the $2,500 detuctible for the year had been met, the new year had rolled around and had to start from zero. Meanwhile I was paying premiums that were close to $400 a month, without having seen a single benefit. The whole experience left a very bad taste in my mouth.
