DI 43510.010 Acceptability of Foreign Medical Evidence

Assume in the absence of any indication to the contrary that a foreign medical report was completed by or based upon the report of a qualified medical practitioner. If there is a question about the qualifications of the source, request the FSP to verify the qualifications of the source, unless the case can be adjudicated without the foreign medical report. When requesting verification of qualifications from the FSP, include in the same request any additional disability or nondisability development which may be necessary.
