What does it mean when Social Security sends you to a doctor?
When Social Security hires a doctor to examine you, the claims examiner instructs the doctor to evaluate whether you have the illness or injury that you claim and to identify any limitations and restrictions you may have.
What happens after you see the Social Security doctor?
The doctor will send a report of the exam or test to the state agency. The state agency will review the doctor’s report along with all of the other information in your case and make a disability decision. We’ll send you a letter to tell you about the decision the state agency made on your case.
