Re-register a denied medical case using the original application date without a new application when:
Do not require the applicant to file an appeal to reopen the case if the information was provided within the 60 days. If eligible, authorize benefits based on the original application date, including any backdating.
This policy does not affect the client's right to appeal the decision on the medical case or change any deadlines to file an appeal of the application that was denied for failure to provide required information or verification.
