Follow – Up: Social Security Disability Denial For Crippled Multiple Myeloma Patient

Posted on January 08 2010 by Pat Killingsworth | 7,481 views

I recieved a number of e-mails in response to Wednesday’s blog post with advice for fellow multiple myeloma patient, Deb, who was recently denied Social Security Disability Benefits, even though she has lost four inches in height and cannot walk unassisted.  The consensus:  Get an attorney!  Isn’t it a shame someone so obviously in need of help can’t get it without hiring a lawyer, who then gets part of the benefit payments if her claim is eventually allowed.  More insedious is the Medicare disability rule, which doesn’t allow a patient to use Medicare until two years after disability status is granted.  And Rush Limbaugh says our health care system doesn’t need fixing!

Feel good and keep smiling!  Pat
