Bone pain is difficult to treat and can seriously interfere with one's ability to work and one's quality of life. Understanding bone pain is very important in disability cases involving "...fractures, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, low back pain, orthopedic procedures, celiac disease, sickle cell disease and bone cancer."

Forbes Disability Group LLC In our experience, most persons who leave the work force and apply for disability have been working while sick or injured for quite some time. They hang on to their jobs as long as they can until they are finally fired for not being able to keep pace or maintain attendance or until their work aggravates the sickness or injury and they end up in the hospital. Most of the disabled we help are the toughest of the tough. They have proven their work ethic over and over. The people at Forbes Disability Group LLC are honored to fight for their rights.

Maine Voices: The problem isn’t Obamacare; it’s the insurance companies

Patients and primary care physicians are getting the raw end of the deal for the sake of corporate profits.

Randy responds:

Interesting perspective from a primary care physician in Maine. Nevertheless, I would point out that it is the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) that allows insurance companies to participate and to impose their high deductibles on patients. The present situation is better than before. (Then, millions were barred from health insurance and the consequence of this was non-treatment, suffering, and death.) However, health care policy can be improved and it is time to move beyond insurance companies and their unhealthy deductibles that prevent the sick from obtaining medically necessary treatment.

From a social security disability standpoint, it is unlawful to deny disability benefits on the basis of failure to seek treatment if the reason for the failure was the inability to afford the cost of care or health insurance. See Craft v. Astrue, 539 F. 3d 668, 679 (7th Cir 2008).


As Drug Costs Soar, People Delay Or Skip Cancer Treatments

Medical decisions should be based on medical considerations. Patients should not be forced to alter their treatment based upon cost considerations if the treatment is medically necessary and within the medically accepted standard of care. Doctors should direct treatment: not cost accountants; not insurance companies; not government bureaucrats


A treating physician’s opinion won’t mean as much when someone is filing a disability claim.

Randy responds:

Rule or no rule, they better give treating physicians' opinions substantial credibility. Credibility is a due process concept. That means it is a constitutional issue. Also, any denigration of a treating physician must pass the logical bridge test. Forbes Disability Group LLC is ready for this unjust change.

Microbiology is important because it involves the study of things that cause infections like bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites etc. If a person suffers from frequent infections that prove resistant to antibiotics or other treatments, then a disability case can be made, especially where too many work absences occur. Usually, one cannot maintain employment if they miss more than one day a month consistently due to illness. A person who suffers from frequent infections of any kind that have interfered with work attendance and have resulted in the loss of a job should consider applying for Social Security Disability.
