Medical Reports to Support Your SSD Case
Perhaps the most important part of your application for Social Security Disability is getting clear, understandable letters from your doctors about blepharospasm and how it affects you. Sometimes the Social Security people may require you to be evaluated by a doctor who is totally unacquainted with the malady. In any case it is wise for the patient to supply the doctor with as much supporting material as possible. The Foundation includes in the packet a sample of several reprinted medical articles to aid the doctor in writing the letter.
A collection of reports and papers follows. Spanning the past five years, all appeared in the BEBRF Newsletter. The reader should be aware that changes and advancements do occur in medical technology. These articles are included because they have contributed over the years to the body of knowledge about Blepharospasm and related disorders.
