When medical records are not received. They usually send the beneficiary to a SSA doctor for a exam 
Nerve damage in upper and lower extremities. Degenerative Disc Disease, RA.

Hope the size of a mustard seed can produce Faith that can move mountains.

Hi...i haven't gotten a short or long form yet, but in case i have a short form coming in February,  on the listed conditions,  i know to list Depression and Anxiety,  but is there a better way to put Borderline Personality Disorder? I don't want t put BPD and the computer red flag it? Any information is appreciated.

Hi, you mentioned that you were approved for MDD and GAD, I would stick with these disorders and not include BPD on the short form(455). As long as it is related to Psychiatry, it will go through. There are only 16 boxes in the reason for visit so you won't be able to fit everything but you can write the following X3:

MOOD ANXIETY DIS   02 23(Month/Year of appointment/visit)
MOOD ANXIETY DIS   01 23
MOOD ANXIETY DIS   11 22

For the short form, you just put the "Reason for visit" for the last 3 of your doctor appointments. I generally recommend using the last 3 appointments you had for the condition(s) you were approved based on. For example, if you saw a podiatrist last week for an ingrown toenail but are approved based on mental impairments, there's no need to include the podiatrist appointment as one of the last 3 visits. JMO.

As mentioned by upndown, you only have 16 boxes for "reason for visit" for each appointment (that includes spaces).

So you could put

DEPRESSION
DEPRESSION
DEPRESSION

or

ANXIETY
ANXIETY
ANXIETY

or I guess you could put

BORDERLINE PERSO
BORDERLINE PERSO
BORDERLINE PERSO

In all 3 of the above examples, I'm assuming the reason for your visits is mainly always because of one of the mood disorders.

Or you could do

ANXIETY
DEPRESSION
DEPRESSION

or whatever if you want if you feel better having more than one condition represented and if that's what you were treated for.

On my first short form, I put

ANXIETY MEDICATI
ANXIETY THERAPY
ANXIETY THERAPY

to differentiate sort of between my psychiatrist and psychologist appointments but you can just put the condition down as well, especially if your conditions have long names. ANXIETY was short enough of a word that I had room to put the other stuff after it. Again though, many people just put the condition down (as much of the name as they can fit) and are fine.

Hope that helps.

Yes thank you so much for that Newdawn. I'm getting nervous honestly because the months are counting down. I don't know if my CDR may arrive early or in February, but i do want t put that i have been seeing my Psychiatrist every 2 months (every 3 months now due to Inflation)

Hi everyone, i hope the 4th of July holiday was good for you.

My question is....Does the SSA sometimes send CDRs early before intended diary date?

CDRs can arrive early, on time, or later than expected.
