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 day timeframe. If eligible, authorize benefits based on the original application date, including any backdating.
If SNAP was denied for failure to provide required information as well, and if the missing information is provided within 60 days of the date of application, follow SNAP reopen policy at PM/WAG 17-04-03-d.
