Some major medical sources treat numerous patients from other parts of the country
or have many ex-patients now living out of the region.
The resident FO is required to document the files with special information when the
sources listed below have treated the claimants. This information enables the DDS
to process the requests for medical evidence.
At the RO's discretion, the FO may be authorized to prepare and release requests to
these institutions. Addresses are provided for this purpose.
