On page I-3-151 C. cont., dated October 30, 1990, delete all the material above “I-3-152 Cassette Audit Requirements”; and
On page I-3-190 cont., add the following to the list of exhibits:
Exhibit 22 Critical Case Flag
Exhibit 23 TERI Flag
In late 1990, the Commissioner directed that SSA develop Agency-wide procedures for expediting claims of individuals who may have a terminal illness. This issuance modifies the existing OHA critical case procedures in order to incorporate the SSA-wide program. The Acting Associate Commissioner introduced these procedures in a memorandum dated January 31, 1991. This HALLEX transmittal explains Office of Appellate Operations processing of critical cases (including terminal illness, or “TERI,” cases) within its Program Review Branches.
In I-3-151, we incorporate instructions for Office of Appellate Operations processing of TERI cases into existing procedures for expediting critical cases. We also modify existing instructions to provide a clearer description of each component's responsibilities.
