SSD Benefits without Health Insurance
Can you claim SSD benefits with no health insurance?
Medical records are one of the most important factors in the approval of
SSD benefits . Without them, it can be quite challenging to get claims approved. If
there is no medical record of doctor visits or medication, then the conclusion
of the SSA will probably be that you do not need disability benefits.
Unfortunately, when you are unable to work and unsuccessful in obtaining
SSD benefits, it can be nearly impossible to pay for the medical treatments
or medications you may need.
Medical records help to document the physical nature of your disabilities
and their influence on your ability to work. They help those evaluating
your case to come to the conclusion that you are in need of SSD benefits.
Denial rates are highest when no health insurance has led to a lack of medical records
documenting your disability.
There are some ways around this, and a Reno Social Security disability
attorney at our firm can provide relevant and insightful assistance. First,
you should take the important step of documenting the pain and the challenges
you are facing daily as a result of your particular disability. Your daily
journal should also include any efforts that you have made to seek medical
assistance including letters, business cards, phone records and anything
else that document your efforts and your troubles.

Doctors will often continue to treat patients when they know that you are
applying for benefits or Medicaid. If there are free clinics in your area,
we recommend that you go there for treatment. As a last resort you can
also visit emergency clinics. The List of Impairments from the
Compassionate Allowance Program has 113 conditions that allow expedited approval for benefits. We can
review this list with you to see if you may qualify under this program.
The application process can often be frustrating and extremely disappointing.
Our focus is to put our vast expertise to work for you and help you in
whatever way we can to obtain your benefits. We charge no fee unless we
actually win your case for you. If you do not have health insurance, contact
a Reno Social Security disability lawyer at our office to see how we can
be of assistance.
