What if you can’t afford medical care but need SSDI benefits?

A catch-22 can be described as a situation that is all but impossible to solve because the answer is prevented by the problem itself. This can seem pretty complicated, but any person who is applying for Social Security disability benefits is probably quite familiar with this logic.

Disabled workers apply for SSDI because they cannot work and need financial assistance to cover necessary expenses. In order to successfully apply for disability payments, a person needs to show that he or she has sought medical treatment and has been diagnosed by a medical professional. But if a person cannot work and collect an income, how can he or she pay for the doctor and care that would prove disability and make a person eligible for benefits?

This is a very frustrating and maddening situation for the people going through it. If they cannot afford to pay medical bills, they don’t have the evidence they typically need to apply for benefits and they could end up without care and without financial support.

However, this is where the help of an attorney can prove to be very beneficial. If you are in Georgia, you can contact the law office of Ellene Welsh to find the resources to apply for not only apply for benefits, but to also identify doctors and medical professionals who can help people who do not have insurance or are unable to pay full price for services.

It is crucial for disabled workers to get the care they need and document this care in order to support claims for SSDI benefits. Too many people ignore this requirement or assume they don’t need to establish medical treatment if they cannot afford it. Sadly, this could lead to a denied claim and a critical delay in getting help.
