Sometimes the patients you treat may be eligible for social security disability. You can help them with this process to make them feel valued as a consumer of your facility’s services.
Speed Up Their Claims Process
Getting social security disability can take a long time, so you need to do everything possible to speed up the claims process for your patients. You can do this in many ways, such as submitting the medical records yourself.
Doing this helps the records go through fewer people so that they can be looked at sooner by Social Security. If you do this, though, you need to make sure the records are accurate and complete. Any type of missing information can slow down the process.
Consider Professional Advice
If your patients have never done this process before, everything may seem foreign and intimidating. That’s why your hospital may want to consult with a claims examiner. They can tell you what to watch out for. This helps your patients fill out forms correctly the first time.
Set up meetings with this examiner so that they can make sure the claims process is moving along as it should. The examiner can also consider your patient’s eligibility for social security disability, potentially saving them a lot of time.
By helping your patients with the process of getting social security disability, you can increase the value of the services you offer. This is a must for maintaining a positive, constant relationship with patients for your hospital.
