A Michigan program is ready to start signing up people with pre-existing medical conditions for a subsidized insurance plan.

The temporary program is connected to the federal health care overhaul approved earlier this year.

The new coverage is available only to those with pre-existing health conditions who have been uninsured for at least the previous six months, including those that have been denied coverage for health reasons.

An estimated 3,500 people will be able to get coverage. They'll pay monthly premiums ranging from $182 to $687 depending on their age.
The coverage will be offered through Physicians Health Plan of Mid-Michigan. The plan starts enrollment Tuesday and coverage should begin in October.
