Section 368.14 - Reapplication.

368.14 Reapplication. (a) Reapplications shall be processed in the same way as new applications. When an individual reapplies after he has been certified as AD--Group I or Group II--and his case is closed for reasons unrelated to a change in disability (e.g., increased social security or other benefits) there is no need for a review team evaluation unless:

(1) twelve months or more have elapsed since date of last case closing;

(2) the individual has, in the interim, engaged in a useful occupation; or

(3) the individual has, in the interim, had a significant change in treatment

such as major surgery, a stay in a rehabilitation center or a period of diagnostic hospitalization.

(b) Cases reopened as Group II in accordance with above instructions, without review team review shall be reviewed at the date which had been set before the case was closed. If reapplication of Group II cases occurs subsequent to the date set for review by the review team the agency secures and transmits any additional data requested at previous review and all previous forms DSS-486, DSS-1151 and DSS-639.
