Default Disability Update Report - Short Form - question #5

My 25-yo son has been on SSDI since age 21. This is his first time receiving the update report form. His disability codes shown on the first scanline indicate approval for autism and organic mental disorder. He sees a psychologist every 2 weeks for therapy and social skills and also sees his primary care physician aprox every 2 years for routine checkups and lab work. He does not take any medications, so there are no doctor visits for that.

Would it be best to only list the last 3 psychologist visits, or should I list the last 2 of those and then his PCP visit for a checkup which was in Oct 2011. The form covers Oct 2011 - present. (And, it's possible that his visit was actually Sept 2011, which would eliminate it anyway -- I need to verify the date with the clinic this week.)

I'm thinking that just the psychologist visits would be the best course of action since that directly relates to his disabling condition, but I thought I'd see what others' opinions on the matter were since ya'll have experience in these matters and this is our first go at it. Thanks!

Even if his last PCP visit did fall within the correct timeframe, I would focus on the visits that address your son's disabilities, his psychologist visits.

I just received an update report form for the first time today... after receiving benefits for about 15 years.

My diagnoses was made by a psychologist about two years prior to that and I have not and have no reason to see such a doctor.

So what will happen is a consultative exam with * an SSA appointed doctor* will be used to determine whether or not benefits continue.

I would think and hope a copy of the diagnoses report I received in 1999 would be adequate. They knew when I was evaluated in person, in 2000 that my case wouldn't change.

There is a possibility that a situation I had with the Health Agency in my state in the last three weeks caused speculation, as I am understanding that random updates on certain individuals cases are reviewed years less than 15 years.

It might be wise to make a check up appt. with same dr if you can , just to save yourself some possible red tape issues. I'm sure SSDI would like to see a recent evaluation as proof.

Agencies aren't linked that way. It is possible they reported that they didn't believe you should qualify.

Did you receive the long or short form?

SS does expect you to keep up with your med/psych care. You need to go back to your former doc asap. New therapies and meds are introduced that could make a difference for some.

We are all subject to reviews and SSI/SSDI isn't awarded permanently for anyone.

Social Security deals with Social Security Income and MediCaid.

The doctor may not even be still practicing and he is in another state. I saw him one time when I was evaluated and he made the diagnosis soon after.

The determination that I was eligible for, and them knowing that day that I have what I have since birth, then oddly to come up fourteen to fifteen years later.

If everyone is periodically reviewed, then I should have been so eight and/or ten and/or twelve years ago.

There has been ongoing issues with individuals receiving benefits they are not entitled for.

I'm not sure whether it's the short or long form.

Might be good to get your records if you can from that dr or whoever has the records now.. If the office totally closed sometimes the affiliated hospital may have the records..
I think with the aging baby boomer generation and the slowed economy - SSDI is having to tighten up the purse strings, you may have slipped through the other times.

If you can't get to the same dr find out who replaced him & has his records now?
Or make appt with another dr, just to have a visit on record for now.
