For less than fully favorable determinations, the review component returns medical evidence of record (MER) technical corrective actions (TCA) to the adjudicating component using Form SSA-847-U3 (SSA Request for Case Action). An SSA-847-U3 requires mandatory corrective action.

B. Procedure for the adjudicating component when correcting 12-month MER TCAs

Upon receipt of the return:

  • Obtain the medical documentation requested on the SSA-847-U3;

  • Prepare a revised determination, as applicable;

  • Update the personalized notice to include any evidence obtained because of the return; and

  • Return jurisdiction of the case to the review component for final disposition.
