I cannot find the template or blank file for MSR. Should I just create a word document following the rubric?
The Medical Summary Report (MSR) Interview Guide and Template is a great tool for writing the MSR. The Interview Guide portion contains key questions to ask applicants when gathering evidence for the application. The Template contains main headings that may be used when formatting the MSR. Be sure to remove the Interview Guide and guidance under the Template headings before turning the MSR in to DDS. It is also important to put the MSR on your agency's letterhead whenever possible.
This guide can also be located in the SOAR Tools and Worksheets under “Application Worksheets.”
