The Importance of Continuing to Treat With Your Physicians
Filing for Social Security Disability benefits is the start of the process, not the end. Here at Jenkins Block & Associates we make sure our clients understand that their job is not done just because they have filed a claim for disability benefits. One of the keys to winning your case and being awarded disability benefits is to continue to treat with your physicians, even after your claim is filed.
Our ultimate goal is to help you get the Social Security Disability benefits you deserve. This is done by (1) developing supportive evidence in your case and (2) advising you on decisions you can make to reduce any weaknesses that could allow the Social Security Administration (SSA) to deny your claim. By continuing to treat with your physicians, you are helping us meet this goal.
You might say, “But I don’t have insurance and going to the doctor is too expensive.” We understand this. We also understand that if you don’t have the right health insurance, it may be difficult to find a doctor that is willing to see you. But our experience, unfortunately, is that the SSA will not accept this excuse. It will want to see that you have looked into free clinics and sought assistance from community organizations.
Jenkins, Block & Associates can help you with this. We have been helping disabled individuals in Maryland and Virginia get the benefits they deserve for years. We know the local organizations that can assist you and they know us. We work closely with these organizations to help you win your case.
Do the best you can to continue to treat for your medical condition. The more treatment you receive, the more evidence we can present in support of your case. And remember, tell your doctor everything that is bothering you.
At Jenkins Block & Associates, we continue to fight for your benefits. Please contact us at (800) 243-7122 to see what we can do to help.
