Equitable relief can only be given with respect to entitlement to Premium Hospital
Insurance (Section 1818 of the act) and Supplementary Medical Insurance.
SSA can provide equitable relief when an individual's enrollment or coverage rights are prejudiced because of the error, misrepresentation,
or inaction of an employee or agent of the government.
SSA may take whatever action is necessary to prevent or correct inequity to the individual,
including (but not limited to) the designation of special enrollment and coverage
periods. (See HI 00805.130).
