The opportunity for a disability hearing is afforded at the reconsideration level
of appeal in cases involving:
favorable initial determinations that were adversely reopened and revised based on
medical factors, e.g., adverse reopenings that revised an allowance to a denial, established
a later onset date, or changed an open period allowance to a closed period;
reopenings that change only the basis for the cessation; or
favorable reconsidered determinations that have been reopened and that we propose
to adversely revise based on medical factors.
