When you are sick, injured, or disabled and you are applying for Social Security Disability benefits, it is important to follow your doctor's orders. Find out why in this video, as an experienced Massachusetts disability lawyer explains more about the importance of a medical treatment plan during the SSDI and SSI claim process.

Many of our clients tell us that they do not like doctors or that they do not want to take medication or follow their doctors' prescribed treatment plans. A doctor develops a treatment plan specifically designed for your needs in order to make you better or to alleviate your pain, and Social Security wants you to follow it. When the Social Security decision maker, such as a judge or examiner, finds out that you have not been following your treatment plan, they may wonder if you would have gotten better had you done so. In order to not lose your benefits, it is wise to follow your doctor's orders.
