Mental Consultative Examination and Your Social Secuirty Disability Case | Clearwater Disability Claim Application Lawyer
If the disability examiner or judge notes in your medical records that you are “depressed” or “anxious,” the Social Security Administration may be obligated to send you for a mental consultative examination even if you don’t claim to be depressed or anxious on your application and have never sought treatment.
Most often these consultative examinations are scheduled because your records indicate that you haven’t seen a doctor recently or because there might be a condition for which you never received treatment. I have written an article about preparing for you consultative examination. If you are scheduled for a Social Security Disability mental consultative examination, call Tampa St. Petersburg Social Security Disability lawyers, Cavey & Barrett.
