If the claimant cannot establish good reasons, or the claimant does not attend or
refuses to undergo a rescheduled CE or test, respond to the assistance request (AR)
and include the documentation in eView.
For paper cases only, return the request to the ALJ, along with the reason(s) the
claimant provided, if any, for missing the CE or test. The ALJ will associate any
documentation from the DDS with the claim(s) file.
NOTE: If the ALJ determines the claimant had good cause for not attending or refusing
to undergo the CE or test (and the claimant does not oppose attending or undergoing
a CE or test), the ALJ will submit a new AR requesting the DDS schedule another CE
or test as soon as possible.
