Keeping Up With Your Medical Appointments
It is extremely important to keep track of your medical appointments while going through the Social Security appeal process. The Social Security Administration needs your medical history in order to correctly address your claim.
If you have been denied at the DDS level, you may appeal to an Administrative Law Judge. It can take twelve to sixteen months before you are scheduled for a hearing with the Administrative Law Judge is set. You must keep track of your medical appointments during this time, so those records can be ordered and sent to the Social Security Administration for review by the Judge. You must know the name of the doctors that you have seen and the offices that the doctors were in. It is also very helpful to know the dates that you saw the doctors, so no records get overlooked.
Complete and correct information regarding your medical history can be a great benefit throughout the initial claim and/or appeal process.
