Request for Application Information

Published Date: Jan. 1, 2014

Submission Deadline: Dec. 31, 2014


The Colorado Division of Disability Determination Services (DDS) is a 100% federally funded program which makes determinations of eligibility for Social Security Disability Insurance and Supplemental Security Income for the State of Colorado in appropriate areas of specialty for the Social Security Administration. DDS is seeking qualified physicians, psychologists, and other medical providers in specific geographic areas of Colorado to perform consultative examinations (CE's) for DDS on Social Security Disability claimants.

Request for Application, DDS requirements, fee schedule, medical protocols, and forms can be obtained by contacting LaVonne Mercure, DDS Professional Relations Supervisor at 303-752-5676 or lavonne.mercure@ssa.gov.

DDS may, at its discretion, temporarily cease to accept new applications in a specific area of medical specialty, a specific geographic zone and/or a specific county in a geographic zone, if, in the opinion of DDS, the number of applications on hand are sufficient to meet its current and anticipated business needs. Providers shall be informed of all such moratoriums, and/or removal of any moratorium, via the Colorado Department of Human Services web site, on the Division of Disability Determination Services page, where this Request for Application Information is routinely and publicly posted.
