What You Can Do to Help
There are several things that you can do to help your patient receive the benefits they deserve.
You can help by documenting your patient’s condition in as much detail as possible and indicate limitations that explain the reasons why your patient can no longer work. Submit to us or to Social Security copies of your treatment notes when requested, and remember that every little detail can help. Other helpful actions include keeping neat records that a lay person can read and understand, providing your patient with appropriate referrals to specialists, and sending patients for appropriate diagnostic testing. Social Security relies primarily on medical providers and other professionals to determine a person’s exertional and non-exertional limitations. For this reason, providing a residual functional capacity form or other statement related to the patient’s ability to perform daily activities can be extremely valuable. Please keep in mind that your patients themselves must pay all your fees for treatment, copying records, and completing forms.
