If a U.K. liaison agency requests a medical examination for a U.S. resident, SSA will
schedule the examination and send the results to the U.K. agency.
The following process is used for obtaining medical examinations for the U.K. (See
GN 01704.810 for general information on processing requests for medical examinations.)
U.K. agency requests for medical examinations are often made in a letter and may or
may not be accompanied by a liaison form.
SSA schedules an examination or forwards "pertinent medical evidence" from files as
described in GN 01704.810.
SSA requests reimbursement for the cost of medical examinations obtained for the U.K.
using form SSA-1278-U3-UK.
