The review component must notify the adjudicating component, via SSA-847-U3, SSA Request For Case Action, when the case contains a medical assessment form TCA or mental impairment TCA.
When these TCAs are present in the case, the review component will:
obtain needed correction(s) from a regional office medical or psychological contractor, as appropriate,
notify the adjudicating component of the correction, via SSA-847-U3, SSA Request For Case Action, and
route the case to the field office.
See GN 04440.244 for more specific information about assuming jurisdiction.
NOTE: Do not assume jurisdiction for cases when the next level of appeal is a disability hearing at reconsideration. This includes:
continuing disability review medical cessations,
adverse reopenings of favorable initial determinations based on medical factors,
adverse reopenings of reconsideration reversals based on medical factors and
adverse reopenings of cessations that change only the basis for the cessation.
If a TCA occurs in these types of cases, the review component must notify the adjudicating component of the correction needed, via SSA-847-U3, SSA Request For Case Action, and return the case to the adjudicating component for correction.
