Finding the Medical Treatment You Need: Free or Low Cost Resources in Maine

Posted in Uncategorized

A crucial part of qualifying for Social Security Disability Insurance or Supplemental Security Income benefits is having a record of medical treatment. In order to determine if you are disabled, the Social Security Administration needs to see medical evidence http://www.socialsecurity.gov/disability/professionals/bluebook/evidentiary.htm) from acceptable medical sources (http://www.socialsecurity.gov/disability/professionals/bluebook/evidentiary.htm) such as licensed physicians and psychologists, documenting your medical condition. Also, in most cases you will need to show that despite treatment, your impairments persist. Therefore, it is important to have medical records that document your medical condition and show your continued treatment.  

However, getting the medical treatment you need is not always easy, especially when you do not have insurance or cannot work. Luckily, there are many inexpensive or free resources in Portland and throughout Maine to help you get the treatment you need.
