In New York, the State agency uses IMA Disability Services (“IMA”) to perform consultative examinations (“CEs”). I represent a 57 year old probation officer with a bad back and ocular albinism, who received four letters from the State agency stating that it was “necessary for you to be examined by” IMA. The letter emphasized that the claimant “must keep this appointment at the time and date indicated above.”
Despite the mandatory language in the CE letters, the CE was not imperative. Sometimes the State agency representative is amenable to cancelling a CE if they receive certain medical information. That was the case with this claimant, whose Social Security Disability application was approved today, after we negotiated providing the State agency with medical information in response to a particularized request.Previous Next
