DI 27001.010 Development of Medical Evidence of Record (MER) at the Reconsideration Level
The rules that apply for developing evidence at the initial level also apply at the reconsideration level of review. However, disability examiners may also submit MER requests to sources that were contacted, but did not submit MER, at the initial level.
For additional instructions on MER development, see DI 27001.001E.2. — The Reconsideration Process.
