Without denying the fact that SSA intends to evaluate opinion evidence based on the primary factors of consistency and supportability, Karl will demonstrate how the new opinion evidence rules provide a way to continue to argue that factors of status as treating physician, specialty, type of treatment offered, etc. STILL must be considered under certain circumstances. This has very important ramifications for how the case is worked up and argued to the ALJ. The goal is, of course, to convince the ALJ to rely upon the treating source to award benefits; however, based on early experience. If the case is set up correctly, an ALJ’s failure to evaluate the opinions based on these factors is legal error that will be successful on appeal to federal courts. And, the beauty of it is that the details of why this is the case are not terribly complicated; but, it will require close attention to the details of how cases are worked up.
