Fro Alexia or Stephanie. SSA asked me to see thier doctors as a part of their evaluation for my CDR. OK.
I did this. Can I request the doctors notes and conclusions from those visits. All he provides is a report, so yes, you can usually get that, although it often takes a few months for SSA to get on it and comply. The doctor will not send it to you, since he is under the rule of the SSA. However, usually, when you are directed to go to a CE exam, they ask you if you want the report to be sent to your OWN doctor, and if so, give his contact info. I'd put the request in writing to the SSA. INnidentally, if you lose this CDR, you can APPEAL and when you appeal, and you write in a request to your local FO for a CD copy of your file - they you will see the report as well.
If yes, is there a form I need to fill out? No.
If the SSA decsion is negative - can I ask for reconsideration (asking another senior analyst at SSA to look at my records) before filing a formal appeal? the "Reconsideration", if your state has it, IS the official avenue of appeal. Some consider it a rubber stamp of the prior decision, and after that, you appeal for a Hearing before an ALJ.
