Medical statements need to be detailed and substantial. Without support of objective medical findings, little or no consideration, at all, will be given to a physician’s medical opinion by an Administrative Law Judge. While writing out his diagnosis of your condition, gently remind your physician to explain all details, especially, diagnosis which supports your claim of disability, even your body’s limitations(e.g. level of inability too sit, stand, walk, stoop, crouch, grasp, reach or otherwise move) and your prognosis.
Remember! Generally, rule is that you cannot be approved for social security disability or SSI based on disability if you are not examined by a medical provider at least once every two months. It is best to abide by your prescribed medications, too. In end, whether you took your prescribed medicine or not may affect how your impairments are viewed. In fact, judges will often deny claims in which claimants did not take what was prescribed. The fact that claimant had no means by which to obtain their needed meds is generally irrelevant to an ALJ at a disability hearing.
Professional medical opinion is very important in presentation of an SSI case. The doctor/physician is only one qualified not only to state that a person is disabled but, rather, explain in detail, why a person is disabled. As such, these statements from qualified medical practitioners can greatly improve a claimant’s chances of being awarded continuing and past due benefits.
