2310 Continuous Eligibility for MCD Adults and Children - Once financial eligibility is established as of the date the case is processed under a MAGI program, all eligible children and non-pregnant adults shall be eligible for a 12-month period. This 12-month period establishes the review period for the family and the individual continuous eligibility dates for all approved members. However, if there is not eligibility in the application month, but eligibility does exist for one or more months of the prior period, continuous eligibility is established beginning with the first month of eligibility in the prior period.

Children and adults who subsequently enter a household, request assistance and are determined eligible for Medicaid shall also receive continuous eligibility for a 12-month period.

Newborns eligible under the provisions of 2320 and pregnant women eligible under the provisions of 2301 shall have continuous eligibility periods established independent of other household member's continuous eligibility periods, as the periods established for these groups take precedence for these individual family members.

When a family contains individuals eligible under any combination of poverty level children, CHIP, Family Medical, newborn or pregnant women categories, individual continuous eligibility periods may differ. Continuous eligibility periods will not always align with other household members.
