One of the great paradoxes of life is that in order to qualify for Social Security Disability benefits you must be getting regular medical treatment, but during the application process you do not have an income coming in to pay for your treatment.  This is something that is a concern for the majority of our clients and unfortunately there is no easy fix. However, there are a couple of options for low income households when it comes to medical care.

  1. Free and Low Cost Clinics-For most of our clients a free or low cost clinic is within easy driving distance. These clinics usually work on a first come first serve basis so our recommendation is to always get to these clinics sooner rather than later and to get there early. If you would like a list of free or low cost clinics in your area feel free to contact our office and we can make that available to you.
  2. Medicaid- If your household income is low enough, you may qualify for Medicaid. Medicaid is a free health insurance provided by the government. We have a insurance specialist in our office who can help you with your Medicaid application and would be happy to assist any of our clients with this free of charge.
  3. Hospital ERs-If you do not have free clinics in your area an ER may be an option for you.
