What if I do not have medical insurance?

In order to support your claim for disability, we will need medical evidence. We obtain medical evidence from the medical records supplied by your doctors, hospitals and other medical providers. If you do not have medical treatment, we will not have the medical evidence we need to properly document and prove your disability. As you can see, it is extremely important that we obtain medical records or medical evidence. If you do not have health insurance, you may be eligible for Medicaid through the Rhode Island Department of Human Services. Please contact your local Department of Human Services office for guidelines and the application.
