(3) Other persons who are citizens of the United States, or
lawfully admitted aliens who are eligible for general
assistance.
(i) Persons who may be eligible for general assistance for
an indeterminate period as a result of medical, social or
related circumstances shall be limited to:
* * *
(C) A person who has been assessed by a physician or
psychologist as having a verified physical or mental disability,
including a person who is a veteran with an illness or injury
caused by or exacerbated by active military service, which
temporarily or permanently precludes him or her from any gainful
employment. The verification of the physical or mental
disability must be established by written documentation in a
form prescribed by the department and must be based on
acceptable clinical and laboratory diagnostic techniques, rather
than a statement of symptoms by the applicant or recipient[.];
except that, in the case of a veteran, the verification of an
illness or injury resulting from active military service may be
established by a statement from the veteran's physician,
psychologist or from the proper military authority that has
actual documented knowledge of the veteran's illness or injury.
The department may also require the applicant or recipient to
submit to an independent examination as a condition of receiving
assistance. An applicant or recipient with a verified physical
or mental disability which is temporary in nature shall pursue
appropriate treatment as a condition of receiving assistance.
