How Consultative Physical or Mental Evaluations are Conducted during the Covid-19 pandemic

Due to the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic,  the Social Security Administration will be scheduling limited in person physical consultative medical examinations (CE)s conducted by internists in Atlanta, GA. As far as consultative psychological CEs, some will be conducted virtually by telephone or by video and some are in person. An employee from the Professional Responsibility division of Georgia Vocational Rehabilitation Agency at Disability Adjudication Services told me that they will be focusing on scheduling CEs for those social security disability claimants, SSI, SSDI, Disabled Adult Child, Widows/Widowers benefits, with critical cases. https://gvs.georgia.gov/disability-adjudication-services

Here is what the Social Security Administration considers critical cases : www.ssa.gov/OP_Home/hallex/I-02/I-2-1-40.html
