(FCRC/All Kids Unit) Process a TA 55/TAR 45 in IPACS to approve a 15-day eligibility period if coverage ends within the 15-day period. This will happen only when the MPE eligibility period begins in one calendar month and ends in the next calendar month.
Example: MPE coverage starts 01/26 and ends 02/09. MMIS shows medical coverage starting 01/22, the date spenddown was met, and ending 01/31. Approve a 15-day eligibility period (for 01/26 through 02/09) since medical coverage ends before the end of the 15-day period. The client will have full coverage from 01/22 through 01/31, and MPE only coverage from 2/01 through 2/09.
