2014 MEDICAL APPEALS

While USTA League acknowledges that a medical appeal process is necessary and should be available, the following should be understood:  Very few medical appeals should be granted, as it is usually better to let the computer determine the NTRP Skill Level based on actual match play.  A medical appeal may be requested by a player for reconsideration of his/her NTRP rating based on a permanently disabling injury or illness that has occurred after the last match played prior to the publication of the most current Year End rating level.

2.05D Medical Appeals. If an intervening, permanently disabling injury or illness indicates that a player’s current computer rating may be too high, the player may request a medical appeal of such rating in accordance with USTA League NTRP Medical Appeal Procedures.

COMPLETING THE 2014 USTA LEAGUE NTRP MEDICAL APPEAL FORM
The following are criteria for completing the USTA League NTRP Medical Appeal:
1.  The permanently disabling injury or illness must have occurred after the year-end or early start raing was established.
2.  The Medical Appeal request and completed USTA League NTRP Medical Appeal Form must be submitted in writing to the player's USTA State League Coordinator who will forward to the Chair of the designated Medical Review Committee.
3.  The Medical Appeal must be accompanied by an attending physcian's statement (APS) that is written by the physician who is treating the player for the specific injury/illness being appealed.  The APS must include a current evaluation of the injury or illness, all substantiating information, a prognosis for recovery with a timeline and any permanent limitations the player curently has.
