Once an individual is determined eligible for Medicaid, eligibility must continue uninterrupted until the individual is determined ineligible for every category of MC+/Medicaid.  A termination without a review for on-going eligibility is improper.  Reviews for on-going eligibility must be conducted without the involvement of the recipient, if possible.  This is known as an ex-parte review.
