The Social Security Administration Partners With Medical Facilities To Speed The Receipt Of Social Security Disability Applicant Medical Records
The key to winning your Social Security Disability claim is your medical records. The Social Security Administration application requests that you list all of your medical providers. The SSA will write to each of the providers asking for a copy of your medical records. It can take a long time to gather all of your medical information.
At Cavey Law, we make sure that all of your medical records have been gathered and are submitted with your application.
New Medical Partners and the SSA
However, the Social Security Administration is now partnering with large medical centers, like Johns Hopkins, to allow direct electronic access to patient records in Social Security Disability cases. The SSA will be able to receive medical records from partner health care facilities in hours instead of weeks.
Of course, you’ll have to sign a release that allows for the electronic access. But, this is an exciting new way to speed up the medical records gathering process. At Cavey Law, we hope that this will also speed up the Social Security Disability claims process and applicants get faster decisions in their claims.
