Never Miss A Social Security Exam
If Social Security schedules you for a medical evaluation, make sure you show up. Otherwise, your failure to cooperate can be grounds for denial of your claim.
Generally, if you have a valid reason for missing a scheduled doctor's visit, a disability examiner will reschedule it. But if you repeatedly fail to attend, you'll probably end up being denied benefits.
Social Security pays for the entire cost of these examinations and they will even provide you with transportation to get there. For the many claimants who do not have the resources to regularly attend doctor appointments with a doctor of their own choosing, this examination provides an effective way to get medical evidence of your disability at no cost to you. In other words, Social Security will pay to help you obtain the evidence you need to win your case.
