What If I Can't Afford A Doctor For My Disability?

Obtaining medical evidence to qualify for Social Security Disability can be difficult if you do not have medical coverage, especially in states like Tennessee, Alabama and Georgia, which did not expand Medicaid. However, you should not give up hope.

At Dale Buchanan & Associates, our lawyers have extensive experience helping disabled people qualify for benefits from Social Security. We offer a free initial consultation to answer your questions about medical care.

Why You Need Medical Care

If you are disabled, you need medical care for two reasons: to maintain your health and to document your disability to the Social Security Administration. You need medical evidence to qualify for both Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI).

If you do not have individual or group medical coverage, the following options may be available to you:

  • Coverage through the Affordable Care Act, or ObamaCare. The Affordable Care Act offers subsidized health care, so you may not have to pay for coverage.
  • Most drug companies will provide drugs free of charge if you are unable to afford them.
  • Most larger cities offer free medical care programs to those who can't afford to buy coverage.

Helping you obtain the medical care you need is our first and most important responsibility at Dale Buchanan & Associates.
