Social Security disability Benefits & Answers for Doctors & Health Professionals
As a medical provider, you see patients with chronic medical problems that significantly impair their ability to work. You know about your patients’ conditions, their diagnoses, test results, and symptoms. And you have some understanding about how their conditions limit their functional abilities. But it often may be difficult to know whether your patient may qualify for Social Security disability benefits. Eligibility is determined by many factors, including non-medical questions relating to the patient’s (and their family’s) finances, whether their work has earned them an insured status under the disability insurance benefit program, age, education, and vocational issues.
This is all in addition to the critical medical issues: whether their conditions result in symptoms and limitations that meet Social Security’s standard of disability and whether there is enough objective documentation to prove it. Roose & Ressler has been helping patients like yours with disability claims for decades. Keep us in mind if you just need an answer to a Social Security disability question or have a patient who might benefit from our services.
