May be this?

UPDATE TableName
SET CoverageEND =
CASE WHEN DateOfEligibility = value1 THEN dateadd( mm, 3 , DateOfEligibility )
WHEN DateOfEligibility = value2 THEN dateadd( mm, 6 , DateOfEligibility )
..........
END

If Bandi's solution doesn't work please provide DDL, DML and expected output. Here are some links that can help you prepare that:
