Consultative Examination-Annual Onsite Review of Medical Providers
Document Number: E7-4958
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-03-20
Agency: Social Security Administration, Agencies and Commissions
We propose to revise the threshold billing amount that triggers annual onsite reviews of medical providers who conduct consultative examinations (CEs) for our disability programs under titles II and XVI of the Social Security Act (the Act). The proposed revision would raise the threshold amount to reflect the increase in billing amounts since we first established the threshold amount in 1991. This proposed revision is intended to restore the level of oversight originally required by our rules.
