I am receiving SOCIAL SECURITY disability on a medical

Customer Question

I am receiving SOCIAL SECURITY disability on a medical determination, I have chronic diabetic anemia, kidney disease,gastropersis,neuropathy and just learned that I have a facet joint syndrome just done facet block last week. But the problem I have is my primary doctor that treat me is in another county and when I moved I still kept him to treat me, I don't drive due to retinopathy I havent been out to see my doctor this year becayse of transportation issue. My last visit with primary doctor was 12-29-2014, I took cab which cost me 60.00 out to primary doctor on 12-10-2014 for yearly physical. I use hospital and Er if I got sick so they have all current labs and testing for this year along with the test i just did with pcp my question is I received a cdr from social security I sent it back and about a month ago I recieve another cdr forms long forms I feeled them out but I am terrufed that I will get denied because I havent seen my doctor all year I had refills on meds and also got refills FROM ER doctors and hospital doctors when meds was needed but im afraid I will lose my benefits because I haven't been current with my doctor visit but I truly dont have transportation I use cabs to get to appointments that are right here close to my house. I have Medicare but they wanted Medicare with a advantage plan or they wasnt taking new patients i looked into getting another doctor here but they wasnt just taking medicare inky and I cant afford the premium or the co pays. Will dds or SOCIAL security disability or dds stop my benefits. Im awaiting the cdr review results . I know they havent requested medical info from my primary doctor because I called them and they said no. I have appointment tomorrow with primary doctor and will discuss this with him. Got any advice as to what I need to say or do? Please help me I am so scared I will lose my benefits even though I am still disabled my daughter told me if she had ti take me she would I have in the past all the way up until last year 2014 I made regularly appointments thats because i was able to ride Medicaid transportation but when they started me with Medicare they took ne off Medicaid and that's where my transportation went. Please please help don't they have to prove that I'm no longer disable before they stop my benefits? I still went and got treatment from Er and hospital doctors when I was hospitalized....
