12-LCM-06: Continuation of OTDA Contract with Medical Providers for Consultative Medical and Psychological Examinations and Intelligence Assessments
The purpose of this Local Commissioners Memorandum (LCM) is to notify social services districts (SSDs) of the continued availability of a qualified medical provider, under contract to OTDA, to provide consultative medical and psychological examinations and/or intelligence assessments, for SSD clients. These examinations support SSD efforts to determine the employability status of persons who are applying for, or receiving public assistance benefits (PA), Food Stamps (FS) or Medicaid. These examinations also may be used to make recommendations regarding referrals to the Social Security Administration (SSA) or Veterans Administration (VA) for federal disability benefits, or to determine disability for Medicaid recipients for Aid to Disabled.
