    3. Medical Source Statement of Ability To Do Work Related 
Activities (Physical and Mental)--20 CFR 404.1512-404.1513, 416.912-
416.913, 404.1517, and 416.917--0960-0662. In some instances when a 
claimant appeals a denied disability claim, SSA may ask the claimant to 
have a consultative examination at the agency's expense, if the 
claimant's medical sources cannot or will not give the agency 
sufficient evidence to determine whether the claimant is disabled. The 
medical providers who perform these consultative examinations provide a 
statement about the claimant's state of disability. Specifically, these 
medical source statements determine the work-related capabilities of 
these claimants. SSA collects the medical data on the HA-1151 and HA-
1152 to assess the work-related physical and mental capabilities of 
claimants who appeal SSA's previous determination on their issue of 
disability. The respondents are medical sources who provide reports 
based either on existing medical evidence or on consultative 
examinations.
    Type of Request: Revision of an OMB-approved information
