In the case of any individual who would (but for this subsection) be excluded from the agreement, subsections (c) and (d)(2) of this section shall be applied as if they referred to the modification under this subsection (in lieu of the agreement under subsection (a) of this section), and subsection (d)(2)(C) of this section shall be applied (except in the case of qualified medicare beneficiaries, as defined in section 1396d (p)(1) of this title) by substituting “second month following the first month” for “first month”.
(3) In this subsection, the term “qualified medicare beneficiary” also includes an individual described in section 1396a (a)(10)(E)(iii) of this title.
