Medical records are at the heart of your Social Security Disability case.

They make the difference between winning and losing your case.

Of course, the only way you get the information in your records is to go to the doctor.

If you have medical insurance, then it is not that difficult.

Make your appointment and tell the doctor your problems and limitations.

You will get your tests for diabetes, xrays, or MRI’s.

There are sometimes more problems if you have a medical card.

Some doctors will not take the card, but at least you can some treatment and testing done.

Free clinics limit the treatment even more. Usually there are no doctors, only nurses who treat you. Medical tests are limited.

However, some free clinics will send you to a specialist if your condition is serious enough.

What is can you do if you do not have any of these options?

You may have to borrow money from family or friends to get an xray or other specialized tests.

This is tough but it may be the difference between winning and losing.

Finally, some Social Security Judges may send you to a specialist or for an xray or other test.

You cannot relay on the Judge doing this. There is no way to make the Judge order tests or doctor visits. You can only request.

Remember no medical treatment, no win.
