Description
 
The timely collection of relevant medical evidence from providers, such as physicians and psychologists, is key to the Social Security Admin. (SSA) process for deciding whether an estimated 2.5 million new claimants each year have impairments that qualify them to receive disability benefits. The initial determinations are generally made by state agencies called Disability Determination Services (DDSs). This report evaluated: (1) the challenges in collecting med. records from the claimants' providers and ways SSA and the DDSs are responding to these challenges; (2) the challenges in obtaining consultative exams and ways SSA and the DDSs are responding to these challenges; and (3) progress SSA has made in moving from paper to electronic med. evidence.
