Give MC/WW cases priority processing using the expedited terminal illness (TERI) instructions
through all levels of case development and adjudication.
NOTE: Although we expedite MC/WW cases following the same procedures as TERI cases, do
not use the TERI flag unless the claim meets the TERI guidelines; i.e., there is evidence
of a terminal illness.
For guidance on expedited processing, see Terminal Illness (TERI) Cases in DI 23020.045.
