PO09363, WorkItem:270628 - Automatic adjustment of certification period by program group logic causes overlapping eligibility


Issue Description:


On renewal of Streamlined Medicaid, when certain conditions are met, the certification period start date is adjusted back, overlapping with the initial Streamlined Medicaid product certification period and causing the individual(s) to be determined eligible on both product deliveries for the same period of time. The specific circumstances where this occurs are when an individual has overlapping eligibility between a custom product and the initial Streamlined Medicaid product, and the eligibility on the custom product starts later, and ends before, eligibility on the initial Streamlined Medicaid product.


User Interface ImpactNo.




  1. Create a custom product that allows overlap of eligibility between itself and Streamlined Medicaid.


Steps to Reproduce:


  1. Login as an Insurance Affordability caseworker.
  2. Register a new Person.
  3. Submit an application for the person to be eligible for Streamlined Medicaid.
  4. Authorize the application.
  5. Apply evidence so the person is eligible for the custom product such that the eligibility starts after, and ends before, their eligibility on Streamlined Medicaid.
  6. Renew the Streamlined Medicaid product.
  7. Issue: The certification period of the Streamlined Medicaid product created by the renewal process is adjusted back to align with the eligibility end date of the custom product, causing it to overlap with the initial Streamlined Medicaid product and resulting in the individual being determined eligible on both Streamlined Medicaid products for the same period of time.




Previously the alignment logic executed as part of program group logic made the assumption that an individual would not be eligible for multiple products for the same time period, this assumption has been corrected and the overlap in certification periods no longer occurs.
