Disability / SSI Law

When illness affects a person’s ability to work or function, Social Security benefits may be available to provide financial and insurance support to that person and their family.  The disability and insurance attorneys of O’Brien & Feiler represent disabled individuals from application through hearings and beyond.  The OBF team works diligently to craft a complete medical record while aggressively pursuing all available benefits.

Social Security Disability Income or SSDI is a federal program that provides benefits to disabled individuals and their families. SSDI is available for those who have worked enough to establish “insured” status and who are unable to work as a result of health problems.

Supplemental Security Income or SSI is designed to help aged, blind and disabled individuals who have little or no income and resources (less than $2,000 for individuals and $3,000 for couples). SSI recipients become eligible to receive Medicaid in the State of Georgia.

Insurance Advocacy

Medicaid Eligibility – Working with patients to qualify them for Medicaid is good for patients and the providers that treat them.  OBF disability and insurance attorneys work to qualify patients for retroactive medicaid and SSI/Disability benefits while creating custom processes for medical providers.  Solutions range from consulting about in-sourcing eligibility and disability-based health benefits through providing comprehensive eligibility solutions.

Liability Claim Resolution – OBF’s expert team and Six-R process (Refer, Research, React, Remind, Recover, Report) reveals institutional payment sources for liability claims.  Physicians and Hospitals can secure a seat at the settlement table with Georgia’s Provider Lien Statute, and the research performed can result in finding other medical claim coverage through Automobile Med-Pay Insurance, Crime Victims Compensation, Workers Compensation, or even UM/UIM Insurance.
