SSA schedules an examination or forwards “pertinent medical evidence” from SSA files.
SSA’s files include claims folders in DIO or in the caves in Kansas City.
Pertinent medical evidenceis evidence obtained by SSA in connection with a continuing disability review or a
disability claim filed or adjudicated within a year of the date for which CSSZ has
specifically requested medical evidence.
SSA will arrange for the form CZ/USA 213 to be completed or the consultative medical
examination be performed if requested to do so by CSSZ. CSSZ will bear the costs of this service. A respective SSA field office employee
will verify and stamp the form CZ/USA 213 before forwarding it to CSSZ. SSA will forward
the liaison/communication form stating SSA arranged for the consultative medical examination.
