0515.005.00 Prior Quarter Medical Benefits

Eligibility determination for prior quarter medical coverage is separate from the eligibility determination for current coverage. A claimant DOES NOT have to be currently eligible for coverage to be eligible for prior quarter coverage and vice versa.

The effective dates of prior quarter coverage can be no earlier than the first day of the third month prior to the month of application and can extend up to but not including the first day of the month of application.
