Submitting Medical Information
As a doctor or other health professional, you play a major role in making sure your patients are aware of the provisions of the Medicaid and Social Security disability programs.
If you are involved in direct patient care, you may also receive requests from DDS to submit copies of your treatment records and reports on behalf of your patients.
The medical information you provide helps us to make a timely, accurate decision on your patient's claim for Social Security or Medicaid disability benefits.
Medical Report Requirements
For each disability claim, we need medical evidence of the diagnoses, exam findings, test results, and any available information about the effects of the impairments on the person’s ability to function.
This medical evidence generally comes from you, the healthcare provider, who has an ongoing treatment relationship with the patient.
You may receive a $20 expedite fee if you submit the requested records within 16 days from the date on the letter we sent you.
Submitting Reports Electronically
You can submit your reports faster by sending them in an electronic format. Choose the method that works best for you:
