GN 01714.310 Belgian Agency Requests for Medical Examinations

A. Policy

If a Belgian liaison agency requests a medical examination for a U.S. resident, SSA will schedule the examination and send the results to the Belgian agency.

Medical examinations for Belgium are obtained as follows.

  • Belgian agency requests for medical examinations are made on Form BE /USA 3.

  • DIO schedules an examination or forwards “pertinent medical evidence” from DIO's files as described in GN 01704.810.

  • SSA requests reimbursement for the cost of medical examinations obtained for Belgium using a reimbursement form. Since Belgium seldom requests a medical examination, a Belgian reimbursement form has not been printed. If a form is needed, the case should be routed to DIO program analysts.

B. Reference
