DI 28040.115 Verification of Continued Impairment Severity -- General

Since MINE or MINE-Equivalent impairments are not expected to improve, the main purpose of the third party contact is to verify the continued severity of the impairment(s) as alleged by the individual/payee.

A current medical source must be called for this verification when possible. However, other third party contacts can be made (see DI 28040.125 ) if there is no medical source and certain conditions are met.
