new textCANCELLATION DUE TO NONPAYMENT OF PREMIUM

Example 8: Mr. A's April premium is due by 03/20/08. If he does not pay his April premium by 04/20/08, his benefits will terminate effective 06/08.

Participants determined eligible for HBWD, whose benefits were terminated due to failure to pay a premium, must pay any past due premiums as well as their first monthly premium before HBWD benefits are re-authorized.

Example 9: Mr. A from the previous example does not pay his $25 April premium by 04/20/08. His case is terminated effective 06/08. He reapplies and is determined eligible again. His premium is still $25. Before HBWD benefits are authorized, he must pay his April premium of $25, his May premium of $25, and his new first monthly premium of $25 for a total of $75.
