Post-Hearing Medical Examinations

Occasionally, a Judge will have a question about the claimant's medical status that comes up during the hearing, which he/she does not believe is properly addressed in the existing medical evidence. This will result in the scheduling of a post-hearing consultative examination paid for by the Social Security Administration. While it is necessary to appear for this examination, your attorney will have opportunity to object to its findings and, in some instances, even request a supplemental hearing. Occasionally, it may be necessary to ask one of your treating physicians to comment on one of these medical reports and counter any negative opinions.
