CAU determines if a client is disabled by using SSA guidelines and criteria. A P3 client must provide medical information from their source of medical care. If a client states they are unable to obtain medical information without payment, the Department will make payment for the medical information. A client who fails to provide medical information, or who fails to cooperate with the Department's efforts to obtain medical information, is ineligible for P3.
If, upon receipt of the medical information, CAU requests further information that cannot be provided without payment, the Department will make payment necessary to secure the additional information.
