If enrollment occurs during a GEP and the deemed IEP begins after the end of the GEP,
award coverage beginning the following July.
EXAMPLE: In 2/91, Mr. Brown files for reduced RIB, alleging he was born 2/28, and submitting
corroborating evidence. Based on evidence of higher probative value, a 2/4/24 DB is
established. An unreduced RIB and HI are awarded effective 8/90.
Since Mr. Brown filed an application establishing HI entitlement during a GEP and
while eligible to enroll (being age 65 and entitled to HI), he is deemed to have requested
SMI enrollment. Unless he refuses such deemed enrollment timely, he has coverage beginning
7/91. If Mr. Brown had filed his application in 7/91 (i.e., not during a GEP), he
would be deemed enrolled during the 1992 GEP, because this would permit coverage to
begin earlier than enrollment in his deemed IEP (11/92-5/93).
