Since the CICP is not insurance, covered medical services are different at each participating hospital or clinic. CICP discounted health care services are restricted to CICP participating hospitals or clinics. The responsible health care provider decides what services are medically necessary. All participating hospital providers must provide emergency care. Many CICP providers also provide urgent care and other medical services such as inpatient hospital care, primary care, and some prescription drugs, depending on available funding.
CICP eligible clients will be given a “CICP Rate” based on their total income and resources. The results of the rating process will determine the client’s copayments for a one year period for available services. CICP ratings may cover services that were received at a CICP provider up to 90-days before the application.
Emergency care is covered at all participating hospitals.
Since CICP is not health insurance, medical services covered under CICP are different at each participating hospital or clinic. Some providers may cover urgent care, inpatient hospital care, primary care, and prescription drugs under CICP.
