Hey!! I'm a new be! CDR and pain meds.
« on: February 05, 2017, 02:28:58 AM »
I have been one several many drugs over a 10+ yrs period. Have been times 12 at a time. 2016 I decided with the help of family to go to rehab. I went to doc 3 months then checked myself in. I saw a psychiatrist while I was there and had therapy also. I stayed with family when I got out but my insurance didn't have docs in the area and no new medicare pat. Either  I moved to Texas with my daughter cause she would be able to get me where I need to go and help take care of me. Same problem here with ins. Got new insurance and inside Co found Dr to see me the day it took affect. I have been on my depression meds all along but not pain meds.   How will this affect my cdr. Driving myself crazy. Please help! Sorry so long

How long were you without pain meds?  Are you back on pain meds now?  You were still receiving care for the depression throughout the entire time period? 

Was the rehab for your use of pain medication? Or for another substance?  Or physical therapy rehab?

Have you received a CDR?  Or are you just expecting one?

If you received one, did you get the short 6 question form?  Or did get get a full long CDR form?

Haven't been on them in about 8 months. Waiting to see pm doc. Seen Dr once to continue depression meds. Rehab was only for opioids.  Received long cdr.

"How will this affect my cdr."  Original post this thread.
 
On what basis were you declared "disabled" based on SSA rules?  Have the Medically Determinable Impairments that prevented your ability to perform Significant Gainful Activity at the most recent Comparison Point Decision improved?  If so, have other conditions developed that would prevent SGA?
