It is possible for Family Planning Presumptive Eligibility (FPPE) and Medical Presumptive Eligibility (MPE) to overlap in IES. This may happen when an individual first receives FPPE and then becomes pregnant during the presumptive eligibility period, or when an individual receiving MPE is no longer pregnant. Both IES and MMIS will accept the overlap in these benefits. MMIS will prioritize MPE coverage over FPPE since it is the more comprehensive coverage. There is no need to terminate FPPE or MPE in IES if this occurs.
