If a member fails to report for an examination under this subsection, after receipt of proper notification, his disability retired pay may be terminated.

(c) If, as a result of a periodic examination under subsection (a), or upon a final determination under subsection (b), it is determined that the member's physical disability is of a permanent nature and is at least 30 percent under the standard schedule of rating disabilities in use by the Veterans' Administration at the time of the determination, his name shall be removed from the temporary disability retired list and he shall be retired under section 1201 or 1204 of this title, whichever applies.
