EXAMPLE: An MQB-B applies in March for ongoing coverage and the case is approved in April. The certification period begins in March; authorization begins in March. The applicant may not later apply for M-AABD retroactively for March and April. He must meet a six month deductible (March-August).
REVISED 06/01/2013 – CHANGE NO. 07-13
If a MQB-E a/b becomes eligible under MAABD (or other aid program/category), the c.p. is not based on the ongoing MQB-E certification period. The c.p. begins with the month the a/b requests assistance under the new aid program/category.
REVISED 06/01/13 – CHANGE NO. 07-13
If a previous application is denied or withdrawn, the c.p. of a new application, including retroactive months, may overlap months that would have been covered in the previous application.
NOTE: This is an exception to the rule that the c.p. must begin with the month of application.
If a beneficiary with a 12 month c.p. has a change in situation which results in a deductible, or placement in long-term care, adjust the c.p. to 6 months.
