.06 Acceptable Medical Statement
A medical statement from a doctor is acceptable when it clearly states the following:
 
●A diagnosis.
●That the participant is MEDICALLY unable to work.
●A specified length of the disability, or the date a re-examination or re-evaluation is needed.
 
When the medical statement does not state this information, contact the doctor, by sending a General Medical Evaluation (FA‑193) to request the information.
 
Clearly document the case file(g) when obtaining the information by phone. (See Collateral Contacts)
