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 Law Firm of O’Brien & Feiler represents disabled individuals through the entire disability process, works diligently to ensure completeness of the record, and aggressively pursues all available benefits.
Social Security Disability Income or SSDI is a federal program that provides benefits to individuals and members of their family. SSDI is designed to assist individuals 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.
Medicaid Eligibility – Working with patients to qualify them for Medicaid is good for both patients and the providers that treat them. OBF works to qualify patients for retroactive medicaid and SSI/Disability while creating custom processes for medical providers. Solutions range from consulting with medical providers about in-sourcing eligibility and disability-based health benefits, all the way through providing comprehensive eligibility solutions.
Medical Claim Resolution – Diligent research by a team of experts and OBF’s Six-R process (Refer, Research, React, Remind, Recover, Report) is designed to reveal 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 additional channels of medical claim coverage through Automobile Med-Pay Coverage, Crime Victims Compensation, Workers Compensation, or even UM/UIM Coverage.
