Frequently Asked Questions: Applying
What happens during the reconsideration stage?
The Reconsideration stage begins after your initial application has been denied. You should present any updates to your conditions and new treatments you may have received at this time. This stage typically takes an additional three to six months.
Over the last few years, the approval rate at Reconsideration is only between 12% to 15%. For the vast majority of applicants who go into the Reconsideration stage, the next step will be to ask for a Hearing.
