Description: In this report, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) makes several recommendations for improving SSA's capacity for determining disability benefits more accurately and quickly using the HIV Infection Listings. The Social Security Administration (SSA) uses a screening tool called the Listing of Impairments to identify claimants who are so severely impaired that they cannot work at all and thus qualify for disability benefits. By the end of 2010, the Social Security Administration (SSA) expects that more than 3.3 million individuals will have applied for disability benefits on the basis that they have a physical or mental impairment that prevents them from engaging in any substantial gainful activity. SSA uses a screening tool called the Listing of Impairments—known as the Listings—to identify claimants who are so severely impaired that they clearly cannot work at all and thus immediately qualify for benefits. The Listings screen provides many claimants with a quicker decision and saves SSA substantial administrative costs. As such, it is important that the Listings conform to advances in medical treatment and diagnostic methods. SSA asked the IOM to provide guidance on updating the Listings covering HIV infection, which can lead progressively to a number of serious medical conditions, including AIDS. In its report, the IOM finds that the HIV Infection Listings, which were developed in 1993, no longer adequately reflect medical reality. Over the past 15 years, advances in therapy have changed the course of HIV infection, and more people are living longer with HIV/AIDS. But their treatments require lifelong daily medications that may have significant side effects. The IOM recommends that SSA incorporate assessments of a claimant’s work-related functional capacity in the HIV Infection Listings. The IOM also identifies a series of actions that SSA can take to maximize the utility of the HIV Infection Listings. For example, SSA should revise its current policy of not making its data publicly available, as allowing wider access to outside groups and analysts could result in improving the timeliness and applicability of the HIV Infection Listings. With these changes, SSA will be able to screen applicants more accurately and efficiently and continue to provide assistance to those in need.
