Complete a REDE of the client's blindness when:
NOTE: Code X appears on the ICL one month before the review date entered in Item 80 code 156 DRD. See WAG 19-06-01-k for how to respond to code
NOTE: Forward progress reports from the source of corrective treatment to CAU.
To complete the CAU review, see WAG 03-07-01. Respond to the CAU decision as follows:
When the review is the result of a CAU request due to progress reports on recommended corrective treatment, the Family Community Resource Center sends the progress report to CAU along with the previous reports used to establish blindness. CAU determines ongoing
eligibility or the need for reexamination.
When the review is due to a reapplication, follow the procedures for an initial exam (see WAG 03-07-01). Send any medical reports that were used to make
the decision on the old application to CAU.
