SSA will not use any MC/PC, CE provider, or diagnostic test facility (except to provide
existing medical evidence):
who is currently excluded, suspended, or otherwise barred from participation in the
Medicare or Medicaid programs or any other Federal or federally assisted program;
whose license to provide health care services is currently revoked or suspended by
any state licensing authority pursuant to adequate due process procedures for reasons
bearing on professional competence, professional conduct, or financial integrity;
who has surrendered such a license while formal disciplinary proceedings involving
professional conduct are pending; or
that has an expired license and it has not been renewed.
NOTE: The exclusion does not apply to the purchase of existing medical evidence of record
from any medical source properly licensed at the time of service. Give such evidence
normal consideration in the processing of the disability claim.
