UTAH’S FREE AND LOW COST HEALTH SERVICES

Salt Lake City UTAH black and white panoramic picture, USA.

UTAH HEALTHCARE RESOURCES AT LOW OR NO COST

Utah’s free and low cost health services are available to you. Listed below you will find healthcare resources throughout the Salt Lake Valley and the State of Utah. On the list, we also have clinics from Northern and Southern Utah.  All of the listed clinics and community health centers state on their website whether or not they will accept a payment plan. Likewise, some clinics may provide services on a sliding fee scale. Other clinics are free. Contact the clinics or healthcare resources directly. They can explain their payment options.

If you want to win your Social Security Disability case, you need evidence. Therefore, you must see a doctor. Doctor’s progress notes, tests, and medical opinions are the evidence for your disability case. The SSA will only accept medical evidence from physicians, psychologist and psychiatrists. For example, for physical problems, you might need to see an orthopedist, an internist, or a neurologist.

However, for mental problems, you need to visit a psychologist or psychiatrist. You will also need to establish ongoing treatment with your psychologist or other provider. It is also smart to see a counselor on a weekly basis for mental issues. Once you see a provider over a period of months or years, then you have a relationship with that provider. As a result, they can support your disability claim.

SECONDARY ACCEPTABLE HEALTHCARE RESOURCES

The SSA realizes most patients get treatment from not only physicians, but other other providers at the doctor’s office. For example, most doctors employ a P.A. or Physician’s Assistant.  Or, patient’s might see a Nurse Practitioner. That person might take your vitals or discuss your medical history. They may also follow you for chronic pain. For example, you may have a back impairment and see the doctor on your first visit. After that, you might go to physical therapy or go to weekly visits with the doctor’s physician assistant. Because patient’s see many providers, the SSA now accepts medical opinions from those providers.
