The Joint Legislative Audit and Review Commission shall study the system for determinations of eligibility for disability claims under the Virginia Retirement System.  The study shall examine both the system operating when the determinations were made by Virginia physicians and the current system whereby such determinations are made by a contractor.  The study shall include but not be limited to differences in approval and denial rates and the rationale for those differences and a review of decisions made by hearing officers of appeals of denials."
