I-4-7-3.Referrals to Medical Support Staff (MSS)

Last Update: 9/13/05 (Transmittal I-4-15)

If the analyst determines that a medical opinion is necessary, he or she will prepare a Request for Medical Comments form (see I-4-3-110). The analyst must include a brief statement of the case and the questions to be addressed by the Medical Support Staff (MSS). The analyst will hand carry the case to the CCPRB Chief, who must approve the referral. Upon approval by the CCPRB Chief, the analyst will use a Court Case Control and Routing Slip (see I-4-2-99), to refer the case to MSS, and will place the case in the outgoing mail basket. For further instructions concerning referrals to MSS, see I-3-2-11 and I-4-3-83 C. Appropriate entries will be made in OHA CCS and LOTS.
