INTRODUCTION: In all claims for disability, we need objective medical evidence to establish the existence of a medically determinable impairment (MDI). Genetic test results sometimes are a part of this objective medical 1 For simplicity, we refer in this SSR only to initial claims for disability benefits under titles II and XVI of the Social Security Act (Act). However, the policy interpretations in this SSR also apply to continuing disability reviews of adults and children under sections 223(f) and 1614(a)(4) of the Act, and to redeterminations of eligibility for benefits we make in accordance with section 1614(a)(3)(H) of the Act when a child who is receiving title XVI payments based on disability attains age 18.

In this ruling, we provide basic information about genetic testing and clarify how we apply our policies when evaluating genetic test results found in the medical evidence of record (MER). POLICY INTERPRETATION: We consider all medical evidence, including genetic test results, when evaluating a claim for disability benefits. The information that follows is presented in question and answer format and provides details about medical genetics and how to consider MER containing genetic test results under our disability policy. Questions 1 through 3 provide basic background information about genetic tests and their use in the medical setting. Question 4 discusses the relevance of genetic test results to our disability program. Question 5 discusses whether genetic test results alone are sufficient to make a disability determination. Question 6 clarifies that we do not purchase genetic testing. Questions 7 through 11 specify how adjudicators should handle evidence containing genetic test results at various points of the adjudication process. Question 12 addresses our policy on the disclosure of genetic information. List of Questions 1. What is genetic testing? 2. How do genetic variants relate to medical disorders? 3. Why do medical professionals order genetic tests? 4. Why are genetic tests relevant to us? 5. Are genetic test results alone sufficient to make a disability determination or decision? 6. Will we purchase genetic testing by way of consultative examination (CE)? 7. Do we consider medical evidence that includes the results of genetic tests? 8. Do we require genetic test results to find a claimant disabled? 9. Who typically provides genetic test evidence? 10. Can we consider genetic test results in the sequential evaluation process? 11. If a person is found disabled, can we use genetic test results when setting a diary for continuing disability review (CDR)? 12. What is our policy regarding the disclosure of the results of genetic tests? Answers 1. What is genetic testing? 2 Genetic testing is a type of medical test that identifies variations in genetic 2 For help with the definitions of the terms and concepts related to genetic testing in this SSR, see the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) Talking Glossary of Genetic Terms, available at http://www.genome.gov/glossary/ index.cfm.
