Following a JCA, you may be referred for a face-to-face Disability Medical Assessment with a government-contracted doctor. This doctor will not be your usual doctor or specialist. The doctor will review your medical evidence to confirm:

  • your diagnosis is supported by the evidence
  • your condition is fully diagnosed, treated and stabilised
  • your condition is permanent for the purpose of DSP qualification, and
  • the impairment rating assigned by the JCA using the Impairment Tables is supported by the evidence

There is no cost to you for this assessment and not all claimants will be asked to complete one.

By 1 July 2015 all claims will use this process.
