UTAH’S FREE HEALTH SERVICES

 Utah free health and disability benefits city of Salt Lake City

UTAH’S FREE HEALTH RESOURCES & THOSE AT LOW 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 medical 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 doctors, psychologists and psychiatrists. For example, for physical problems, you might need to see your primary doctor and get a referral to an orthopedist or a neurologist.

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

SECONDARY ACCEPTABLE HEALTH RESOURCES IN UTAH

The SSA realizes most patients get treatment from not only doctors, but other providers at the doctor’s office. For example, most doctors employ a P.A. or Physician’s Assistant.  Or, you 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. Likewise, you might go to weekly visits with a physician assistant. Because you may see many types of doctors and nurses, the SSA now accepts medical opinions from those providers.

YOU NEED MEDICAL EVIDENCE TO WIN DISABILITY BENEFITS IN UTAH

Below please find a list of Utah’s free and low cost health clinics and medical centers. These places often offer free health care if you do not have the ability to pay to see a doctor.

The clinics offer walk-in appointments, doctor care, and treatment for ongoing physical issues. You can obtain dental care, vaccines, flu shots, vision care and other treatment by calling the clinics near you. By getting medical care, you have a much better chance of winning your SSD and SSI benefits.

For example, if you have a mental impairment, you need to see a psychiatrist or psychologist. These are the treating sources who have experience treating mental illness. If you have records from them, it should go a long way toward convincing a judge that you deserve benefits.

Likewise, if you have a physical impairment, like Multiple Sclerosis, see a specialist for treatment. A reasonable judge is going to accept the opinion of a treating doctor over the opinion of a general doctor who doesn’t know you and only read your medical records.

Even if your doctor writes a letter stating you cannot work, the SSA doesn’t have to give it much weight. For instance, the only time they accept a letter from your doctor is when the medical records support that opinion. In other words, submit all of your medical records as soon as possible.  This includes records of past operations, X-rays, MRIs, and CT scans. Also, this includes EKGs, EEGs, physical therapy records, blood tests, and any other evidence from a doctor.

PSYCHIATRIC FACILITIES FOR INPATIENT TREATMENT

In Utah, there are many free and low cost mental clinics and services. If you need help with severe mental illness, you should contact one of them. These clinics offer mental treatment, education, and inpatient care. They may also offer ongoing outpatient mental health care.

When individuals with mental illness are suicidal, these are the resources that you need to contact. While these clinics may not be free, they will often work with Medicaid. Learn about Medicaid benefits here. Sometimes they also accept Medicare benefits. Learn more information about Medicare benefits here.

Additionally, they usually work with your insurance to get you the mental health treatment you need. If you do not have insurance, you should still call them if you need acute mental care.

Similarly, other units have safety rules for patients struggling with psychosis. For example, you may hear voices or see things that are not there or that other people cannot see. For issues like that, you need mental health treatment.

UTAH’S FREE HEALTH SERVICES AND YOUR MEDICAL RECORDS 

At Cannon Disability, we know how hard it can be to get medical care when you don’t have health insurance. It is our goal to help our clients by giving them a list of Utah’s free and low cost health resources. We also know that you don’t have a job right now. However, there are some doctors who will accept cash as payment.

If you do not have health insurance, then you can apply for Medicaid. Find out about Medicaid benefits information here. If you obtain Medicaid, then it will cover your doctor visits. You can also call the above list of mental and physical resources to see if they will treat you. If not, you could ask if they will accept a payment plan or cash payments.

Going to the doctor, following his or her treatment advice, and getting your medical records for the SSA is the only way to win your SSD case. Letters written by your family or friends are not medical evidence. That can be helpful, but letters from your family can never take the place of medical evidence. However, progress notes showing ongoing visits to the doctor are evidence of medical treatment.

X-rays, MRI’s, doctor exams, and IQ tests – these are medical evidence. A note from your mother is not medical evidence. Without evidence, you cannot win your Social Security Disability or SSI case.

If you need help getting your medical records, please contact us today. Likewise, if you need Utah’s free health services, use our list. Also, if you need more information, call us. We can help.
