Tercera edad IVA reduction - possible in retrospect?

Hola. We bought a car in Quito in Nov 2018, shortly after we arrived from USA with our temporary residence visas. Car purchase was done after we had our cedulas. I have since learned of, I believe, an $8,000 reduction in cost of vehicle if tercera edad. 1) Is it possible to claim and get refund at this point? 2) What is the process? 3) I assume this is different from IVA refund - correct? TIA.
