(b) The department may determine eligibility without requiring the applicant or recipient to submit a new application under the following circumstances if the department already has enough information to determine eligibility:

(2) an individual is being added to an ongoing Medicaid case and the caseworker is able to obtain all other needed verification and documentation;
(3) an individual is already receiving benefits administered by the division handling public assistance within the department, and the existing public assistance record contains enough information to determine Medicaid eligibility;
(4) a household moves from Family Medicaid to Transitional Medicaid or from Transitional Medicaid to Family Medicaid;
(5) a child who has been eligible under a category in 7 AAC 100.002(a) or (c) related to Family Medicaid moves to the disability-related eligibility category in 7 AAC 100.002(d) (5);
(6) an individual submits a Medicaid application form designed for a different Medicaid eligibility category than the one intended, but the application form submitted contains enough information for the department to determine eligibility for the intended category;
(7) the department is reinstating benefits for a recipient whose Medicaid eligibility was terminated, if the recipient has made a timely request for a hearing under 7 AAC 49, or reinstatement of eligibility is ordered under 7 AAC 49 or by the court.
