SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

The final regulations that are the subject of these corrections affect disability determinations and decisions we make for individuals under title II and title XVI of the Social Security Act. In addition, to the extent that Medicare and Medicaid eligibility are based on entitlement to benefits under title II and eligibility for benefits under title XVI, these corrections would also affect the Medicare and Medicaid programs.

Need for Correction

As published, the final regulations inadvertently did not update the cross-references in listings 111.07A and 111.08A of part B of the listings to reflect the new musculoskeletal listings criteria. The cross-references in current listings 111.07A and 111.08A are to listings 101.03 or 111.06. To reflect the revised musculoskeletal listings, the correct cross-references should be to listings 101.02 or 111.06.
