Revised Medical Criteria for Evaluating Neurological Disorders
Document Number: 2014-02659
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-02-25
Agency: Social Security Administration, Agencies and Commissions
We propose to revise the criteria in the Listing of Impairments (listings) that we use to evaluate disability claims involving neurological disorders in adults and children under titles II and XVI of the Social Security Act (Act). The proposed revisions reflect our program experience; advances in medical knowledge, treatment, and methods of evaluating neurological disorders; comments we received from medical experts and the public at an outreach policy conference; and responses to an advance notice of proposed rulemaking (ANPRM).
