GN 01728.310 Portuguese Agency Requests for Medical Examinations

A. Policy

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

Medical examinations for Portugal are obtained as follows:

  • Portuguese agency requests for medical examinations are made on Forms P/USA 6 and P/USA 6a.

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

  • SSA requests reimbursement for the cost of medical examinations obtained for Portugal using a reimbursement form. Since Portugal seldom requests a medical examination, a Portuguese reimbursement form has not been printed. If a form is needed, the case should be routed to IOTS.

B. Reference
