A beneficiary who filed for a SMI termination before April 1, 1981, would have had
a termination effective with the earlier of:
the date coverage would have terminated under prior law (before the 1980 Amendments),
April 30, 1981 (unless the beneficiary filed notice that he wanted coverage to terminate
as in a. above).
If a beneficiary had his coverage terminated under a. above, his DOTS date was the
third month after the TTDS or the end of the quarter after the quarter of his request.
If he terminated under b. above, his DOTS date was 05/81.
A SMI withdrawal after a state buy-out can be processed through PEPPER, MADCAP, or
MISCOR CIP R, as appropriate. See SM 00613.000 for coding instructions.
The deletion of an individual from State buy-in coverage is normally accomplished
through the Third Party Annotation Operation (TPAO), and is reflected in the claims
folder on an SSA-1596-C1).
Exceptions from TPAO are manually processed through MADCAP or MISCOR CIP R and will
be reflected on debit Forms (SSA-2795-U3 or 2652-U2) in the claims folder. The processing
of a withdrawal request under the special provision is dependent on the presence in
the claims folder of documented evidence that the deletion action has been accomplished.
