Does Social Security disability pay for doctor visits?




 
Social Security will only pay for consultative exams (medical and/or mental evaluations) to help determine the severity of your medical conditions.

What does this entail? It means that, after you have filed an application for social security disability or SSI disability benefits, you may be notified at some point that you have been scheduled for a medical examination.

A consultative examination, or CE as these are known, is for the purpose of gathering additional medical evidence so a decision can be made on your disability claim. And very often, this type of exam is scheduled when an individual who has applied for disability has not been seen by a doctor recently.

However, the Social Security Administration does not pay for medical treatment of any kind, and therefore will not pay for regular doctor visits while a disability claim is being processed (consultative examinations for the purpose of making a decision on a disability claim are paid for by the social security administration).

To answer the question another way, however, individuals who are approved for SSI disability benefits will be eligible for medicaid and individuals who are approved for social security disability will be eligible for medicare.
