In the OSIPM program, when individuals received Medicaid-covered medical services prior to the date of request (see OAR 461-115-0030 (Date of Request)). This includes deceased individuals who would have been eligible for Medicaid covered services had they, or someone acting on their behalf, applied.

(b)

In the QMB-SMB and QMB-SMF programs, when individuals paid or incurred Medicaid-covered Medicare Part B premiums, or were eligible for but not enrolled in Medicare Part B prior to the date of request and received Medicare Part B-covered services. This includes deceased individuals who would have been eligible for Medicaid-covered premiums had they, or someone acting on their behalf, applied.

Individuals applying for medical assistance through the REFM program are evaluated for retroactive eligibility.
