Disability Evaluation Q & A

What is a disability evaluation?

A disability evaluation is a medical physical exam that the Social Security Administration and the Disability Determination Services require from some people who are applying for Social Security Disability Insurance.

They typically ask for a consultative exam when your medical record doesn’t contain sufficient information to determine the extent or existence of your disability. The team of compassionate doctors at Sunshine Medical State Inc. provides thorough assessments of your health in order to help the Social Security Administration determine if you’re eligible for benefits.

Disability evaluations are slightly different in nature than traditional medical physical examinations. While a traditional exam is conducted for the purpose of giving medical advice or prescribing treatments, your disability evaluation is performed in order to assess your medical condition and any potential limitations caused by your health.

Who can perform a disability evaluation?

The Social Security Administration requires that your consultative exam be done by a “qualified medical source,” which means that the examiner must be licensed in the state in which they practice, have significant training and expertise, and not be barred from participation in the program.

Sunshine State Medical Inc. is a qualified and licensed provider of disability evaluations and has successfully done a great many evaluations for its patients in Florida.

What happens during a disability evaluation?

Your disability evaluation will be unique to whatever your medical disability is. Depending on the reason for your application for disability benefits, your evaluation could be limited to just an in-office examination. It might also include more extensive tests like blood work, X-rays, and/or an EKG.

The Social Security Administration requires that all disability exams detail your ability to perform work-related functions.

How should I prepare for my disability evaluation?

You should treat your disability evaluation just like any other doctor’s visit.

Arrive a few minutes before your scheduled appointment so that you have time to fill out all of the necessary forms. You should also make sure to be prepared to answer detailed questions about your medical condition and have a list of all of the treatments you’ve had and the medications you’re taking.
