Is PCIP the same thing? Looks like that is for pre-existing condition coverage. Interesting that they don't cover teeth, but does this mean PPACA doesn't mandate it for broader policies (or employer-sponsored policies)?

I think California's response about dental not being covered was about the National law. Here is a reference a quick search found for the relationship between the two sets of acronyms:http://www.lifehealthpro.com/2012/04/17/ppaca-federal-pcip-a...

Congress put the PCIP program in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (PPACA) in an effort to provide immediate relief for uninsured people with health problems. PCIP is meant to help fill the gap between the date PPACA was signed in March 2010 and the day when insurers are supposed to start selling subsidized coverage on a guaranteed issue, mostly community-rated basis in 2014.
