If the DDS cannot prepare a continuance based on the evidence of record and information
obtained during the MINE process (for example, the individual indicates he or she
has had a kidney transplant, or corrective heart surgery, etc.), the DDS will request
the FO to establish personal contact. Even though the DDS uses routine continuing
disability review (CDR) procedures, these cases require skillful interviewing and
the DDS will forward the folder to the FO to request any action(s) to assist in making
a medical decision.
