Federal Disability Benefits 2

by on April 3, 2010

We finally finished the medical records portion of the disability Application.  I submitted it electronically online today.  It took a long time and it was a lot of work.  The final report was 23 pages long, listed 11 “primary” doctors, 9 hospitals/clinics, 31 lab tests/scans, and 35 medications. 

I omitted all the “second opinion” doctors.  I tried to simplify the lab tests/scans since most were repeated many times.  The medication list is fairly accurate but I’m fairly certain that some of the more generic drugs were omitted from our records.

Now I need to send them the actual medical records.  That should be interesting.  The records I have are from only 2 of our 11 doctors and the document package is 1.5 inches thick.

Update 4/13/2010:

I just FedEx’ed the medical records package to them-All 5 1/2 lbs of it.  I just realized that the office is only in Santa Ana.  I should have saved the $15 and drove the sucker over there.  Oh well, at least I have tracking ability.

Update 4/14/2010:

Ms. Thompson just called-She’s a really nice lady.  Apparently, the FedEx box on her desk this morning made an impression.  She thought it was some training materials for the office but was surprised to see that it was Satomi’s medical records.  I apologized and we laughed.  She explained the remainder of the process and expected that the process should go smoothly.
