Follow Your Doctors Treatment Plan When Filing for Social Security Disability

When filing for Social Security disability benefits it is very important to follow your doctors advice and treatment plan as your disability claim could be denied by the Social Security Administration for failure to do so. For instance if your medical records indicated that a treating doctor prescribed medications, physical therapy and injections for your back pain but you declined the recommended treatment you could be denied benefits for not following prescribed treatment. The Social Security judge deciding your claim may rule that you refused medical treatment which may have alleviated your back pain and allowed you to get back to work. If you did not have health insurance or money to pay for these treatments you may be able to convince a judge not to hold this against you.
