SSDI and Doctors
« on: August 01, 2015, 10:26:00 PM »
Does a Dr have to fill out any forms sent by SSDI? I am pretty sure my Psycholist will not fill out a damn thing. All he really does is see me for five minutes and write prescriptions.

And he is not very smart, he does not suggest what meds I should be on, I look them un on google and see if they would help me and ask for them when I see him.
He did once try to prescribe me the date rape drug because of my sleeping issues, but I said I don't want it. I never knew such a drug is made available to the public.

If I could go back in time I would have become  a psychiatrist. They make really good money and don't have to even touch a person.

Yes, the Social Security Administration will send forms to all the doctor's you provide to them.  They request all pertinent medical records, which would back up your claim of disability.  I believe if you hire a lawyer, they usually want to get those medical reports before sending them to SSA.  I could be wrong about that and SSDI gets them independent of your lawyer.  But, I thought lawyers want to see what's being sent, before it is sent. 

Others here will be able to clarify that.  But, yes, SSDI wants info from all the docs you list, which would help your case.
