An individual's first month of eligibility for SMI is the month in which he/ she meets
the requirements in A. above.
Where eligibility is based solely on entitlement to premium-free HI, the first month for which the individual is eligible
for premium-free HI is the first month of eligibility for SMI.
The month of first eligibility for SMI is the fourth month of the initial enrollment
period (IEP), which is explained in HI 00805.015.
NOTE: The first month of eligibility is not necessarily the first month of entitlement.
The filing date controls the entitlement date.
