Can I force pip to reinstall the current version?

I've come across situations where a current version of a package seems not to be working and requires reinstallation. But pip install -U won't touch a package that is already up-to-date. I see how to force a reinstallation by first uninstalling (with pip uninstall) and then installing, but is there a way to simply force an "update" to a nominally current version in a single step?

    pip install --upgrade --force-reinstall <package>

When upgrading, reinstall all packages even if they are already up-to-date.

    pip install -I <package>
    pip install --ignore-installed <package>

Ignore the installed packages (reinstalling instead).
