Temporary Assistance/Case Management Manual

0205.050.20.05 Obvious Incapacity

Base all determinations of Temporary Assistance incapacity on medical evidence (except as stated above for persons receiving OASDI or SSI benefits based on disability or blindness).

However, when the illness, or incapacity is obvious and previous medical examination reports exist that still appear to be consistent with the caseworker’s present observations, a new examination is not necessary.  If no medical examination reports exist, a medical examination may be requested.
