DI 11010.550 Processing Requests for Payment for Medical Evidence Title II/Title XVI Claims
The FO is not involved in the actual payment process.
When an individual obtains evidence on his/her own and requests payment, or a receip for payment is received from the medical source, accept the evidence submitted. If thefolder is still in the FO, document the folder to show the request for payment was received. Then send the disability folder containing the request to the DDS for disposition. If the medical evidence, or a request for payment, is received after the folder has been forwarded to the DDS, send the evidence and required documentation to the DDS for association with the folder and necessary action. Also, refer questions to the DDS when the FO cannot provide information about payment for medical evidence.
