If a temporary notice is requested after a claim has been forwarded to the PSC and
the requirements for issuance of a notice are met, issue a temporary notice. If it
is not clear whether or not a health insurance card, or temporary notice of eligibility,
has already been issued, obtain an entitlement status query (ESQ) to determine whether
a Medicare enrollment database (EDB) record has been established.
If a record has been established, do not issue a notice.
