Verify Accuracy of Expected Delivery Date and Update as Appropriate in Health Information
The LMP Start Date, which is used in calculations to system-assign certain risk factors and the number of weeks gestations for linked infants, is calculated based on the Expected Delivery date. If the Expected Delivery date is incorrect, it can affect the system's ability to accurately calculate and system-assign Risk Factors.
The Expected Delivery date field is one of the few fields enabled in the Pregnancy tab of the Health Information screen. It is essential that you verify the accuracy of the participant's Expected Delivery date prior to beginning a new certification and update it if appropriate.
NOTE: Since this date also affects the participant's Cert End Date, you should also try to verify it at Nutrition Education Contacts (benefit pick-ups).
