The FO is not involved in the actual payment process.
When an individual obtains evidence on his/her own and requests payment, or a receip
for payment is received from the medical source, accept the evidence submitted. If
thefolder is still in the FO, document the folder to show the request for payment
was received. Then send the disability folder containing the request to the DDS for
disposition. If the medical evidence, or a request for payment, is received after
the folder has been forwarded to the DDS, send the evidence and required documentation
to the DDS for association with the folder and necessary action. Also, refer questions
to the DDS when the FO cannot provide information about payment for medical evidence.
