Reference DDS admin Ltr. # 931 Genetically targeted Drug treatments for Cancer and SSA's Disability Process. Our medical consultants opine that the approach to rating cancer claims will not change based on this type of treatment. The cancer listings, and resultant ratings, depend upon the response to treatment and the claimant's subsequent ability to perform work. The type of treatment (i.e. genetically targeted drug treatment for cancer) does not matter.
