Maintaining Your Patient Relationships: How SSDI Can Help

Sustaining your therapy practice can be challenging when your adult patients experience financial difficulties themselves. This course explains how you can help your patients achieve better treatment outcomes by access to vital income through the federal insurance program called Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). SSDI is a vital alternative when your patients’ have experienced a chronic injury or illness that prevents them from working.

Health conditions more likely to qualify for SSDI include stroke, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, cancer, myasthenia gravis, and neurological and degenerative medical conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis and osteoarthritis.

Interactive Metronome is collaborating with disability services provider, Allsup, to bring training that outlines the importance of SSDI for adult patients, why it’s often overlooked as a resource, the complexity of the application and appeals process, and how you can easily guide them to support with this process. Participants will add to their options for helping maintain the therapy relationship with their adult patients for as long as they need treatment, and be able to restart therapy with those who may have stopped due to financial limitations.

Not Offered for CEUs.
