Field Offices (FO's) are responsible for processing an initial insured status denial
(see GN 01702.315 - GN 01702.325) when the worker has at least 6 QC's but is not insured based on U.S. coverage alone.
This denial will produce a notice advising the claimant that insured status is not
met based on U.S. coverage alone and that the foreign coverage record is being requested.
(Processing the initial denial also stops SAACCS time from accruing.)
The Office of International Operations (OIO) will request the French coverage record.
When the French coverage record is received, OIO will convert the French coverage
to QC's and finally adjudicate the claim.
