  2. Due to COVID-19, many OHO's cleared out all of their pending hearings. Processing of reconsiderations and initial claims has been slow in many parts of the country. We are suggesting that to keep your staff fully engaged, that you should process the reconsiderations and initial claims (many of which have become aged) now. Open the ERE and find out if the case is still pending to due a missing CE, missing evidence, etc. Get a CE form and have your client take it to their doctor for completion. Call the doctors offices with outstanding evidence and get the records or enlist the client. This will keep the client's happy and hopefully help you win the case early. As many of these cases are aged, you should be able to collect a reasonable fee for your efforts.
