A CDR conducted for entitlement to Premium-HI must not consider the performance of SGA in evaluating continuing disability. A finding that
the individual is not disabled for Premium-HI must be based on medical improvement.
ODIO/PSCs initiate the CDR and process all disability continuances to completion.
Cases involving medical improvement or other medical issues for which a cessation
is probable are referred to the DDS for processing.
The interim award notice must inform the applicant for Premium-HI that continuing
entitlement to benefits is subject to a medical review, and serves as the prereview
notice normally sent to a disability beneficiary when a CDR is initiated.
