HI 00630.130 General Enrollment Period - Medicare Outside U.S.
Social security beneficiaries living outside the United States who are not enrolled
for SMI are not contacted during a GEP. Such contacts would encourage enrollment by
many individuals who would not receive benefits under the program.
However, if correspondence is received during the GEP from a beneficiary wishing to
enroll and he qualifies, the module HI-SMI clerk will prepare a dummy form HCFA-40F
for submittal to EAM and forward the folder to files or the next work station indicated.
