What if looking for services and benefits available from another program would delay or interrupt my progress toward achieving an employment outcome?

(1) A DVR counselor may begin providing VR services without conducting a review to determine whether services or benefits can be provided to you or paid for, in whole or in part, by other federal, state, or local public agencies, by health insurance, or by employee benefits if the review would delay or interrupt:
(a) VR services to an individual determined to be at extreme medical risk, based on medical evidence provided by a qualified professional;
(b) An immediate job placement; or
(c) Your progress toward achieving the employment outcome identified on your individual plan for employment.
(2) If you receive VR services before services or benefits are available from another program, you begin using the services and benefits from the other program when they become available.
