When you file for disability do you have to see their doctors?



 
"When you file for disability do you have to see their doctors?"

Not always. In many cases, however, a person will be sent to what is known as a consultative examination with an independent physician. The examination is paid for by the Social Security administration and is performed by a private physician or psychologist if the examination is of a mental nature.

Most of the time the examination is a physical exam. It usually does not last very long. Perhaps 10 to 20 minutes. In most cases, when a person is sent to a consultative examination, it is because Social Security does not have access to recent records, meaning something that is not older than 90 days in the medical records that have been gathered.

Here are some pages that discuss Social Security medical exams:



1. What triggers the scheduling of an examination?

2. Medical Exams and How they affect Disability Claims

3. What types of doctors do Social Security examinations?

4. What should you say if you go to a Social Security Exam?
