Bringing this thread back up to see if anyone has experience with PCIP they can share. I have a relative in Florida who is retired and 2.5 years short of being Medicare age. He has been uninsured hoping to get by till Medicare starts. His back problems have gotten so bad that he may need surgery. Is PCIP a good choice for him?

PCIP is about the worst run program I've ever seen, but if that's all he can get, it's better than nothing.
