Medicaid and Social Security Disability Benefits in Tennessee

by Staff Blogger | March 20th, 2017

In our current political climate, there’s a lot of conversation about the future of programs such as Medicaid, which helps a lot of Tennesseans obtain affordable healthcare coverage. If you’re currently benefiting from Medicaid, you are probably pretty anxious to see how everything shapes up in the next several months. Like Medicaid, Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits can be life changing for Tennesseans with a disability, but securing those benefits isn’t easy.

The obstacle many disabled Tennesseans face is the application process. In order to qualify for SSD benefits, you must prove that you cannot do any type of work, not just the work that you’ve done your entire career. Proving that level of disability can be difficult on your own, which is part of the reason more than two-thirds of all initial SSD applications are denied.

We know the system. We know what helps get claims approved. And we know the pitfalls to avoid along the way.
