The issue of whether a person continues to have a disabling impairment arises when
a person is about to or has already completed the TWP. The case must be sent to the
DDS to resolve the medical issue if the medical folder review in ODIO/PSC-DRS does
not establish the person to be currently disabled according to screening criteria
in DI 28055.020.
The medical review is not limited to cases in which the person is in payment status
during the EPE. If the person is eligible for any work incentive benefits (e.g, reinstatement
if work ends, Medicare), the issue must be resolved, i.e, the EPE medical review/disabling impairment CDR must be made.
