Consider equitable relief in any SSA decision affecting SMI entitlement or termination
which is subsequently reversed on appeal, even if the original decision was the only
one possible based on the evidence in file (i.e., the appeal decision was affected
by receipt of new evidence).
If, after the appeal, the date of entitlement to SMI is earlier, offer to the beneficiary
the choices described in HI 00805.195.
If SMI begins later, follow HI 00805.210 to permit the former period of entitlement to stand unless the individual promptly
requests that his/her entitlement to SMI be changed.
If a SMI termination is reversed or changed to a later date, follow HI 00805.215.
If SMI is terminated earlier, allow the erroneous period to stand unless the individual
promptly requests that the period of SMI entitlement be altered in accordance with
the revised determination.
