  2. To qualify for continued coverage, you must request a hearing on the adverse action no later than:
    1. The tenth day after we (the medicaid agency or its designee) sent a notice of the action to you; or

      1. Terminating your continued coverage; or
      2. Ruling you do not qualify for benefits.
  5. You cannot receive continued coverage if the adverse action was solely to a change in statute, federal regulation, or administrative rule, unless there is a question about whether you are in the class of people affected by the change.
