Excluded medical sources of evidence must provide a written statement of exclusion
each time they furnish evidence to us directly or indirectly through a representative,
claimant, individual or other entity, see DI 23060.020A. If an excluded medical source(s) of evidence does not include a written statement
of exclusion with the furnished evidence, refer the source to SSA's OIG. For more
information about excluded medical sources of evidence, see DI 23060.010.
EXAMPLE: An excluded medical source of evidence submits evidence without including a written
statement of exclusion. The adjudicator receives clear documentation (e.g., an email
from a DDS administrator or professional relations officer) that the source is an
excluded medical source of evidence. Refer the source to SSA’s OIG.
