It may seem obvious, but the most important part of getting approved for Social Security Disability is your medical treatment.

If you do not get treatment you will be denied.

The Administrative Law Judge looks at your medical records when they decide your case.

If you have no treatment or not much treatment you will lose your Social Security Disability case.

I realize it is often very difficult to get medical treatment without health insurance but there are ways to get needed treatment.

You can apply for a state medical card.

You can apply for charity care through local hospitals.

You can apply for free or reduced price clinics.

You can go to community mental health clinics.

Again, none of this is easy. However, you must try very hard to get the needed medical treatment.

It is worth it in the end, when you are found disabled.
