REVISED 6/01/13 – CHANGE NO. 06-13
REISSUED 11/01/09 – CHANGE NO. 14-09
If a previous application is denied or withdrawn, the c.p. of a new application, including retroactive months, may overlap months that would have been covered in the previous application.
When an ongoing case is terminated and the individual reapplies, even if the case was not authorized, the retroactive or prospective c.p. can begin no earlier than the month following the month of termination. This may mean that other months in the original c.p. after the termination date may be included in a subsequent c.p.
This is an exception to the rule that the c.p. must begin with the month of application.
If a recipient 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.
