Detailed and up-to-date medical records are absolutely critical to winning your case for Social Security disability benefits. After slogging through the complex and frustrating disability process, the last thing you want is a lack of records torpedoing your case. You need your medical records and that means you will need health insurance so you can continue to see your healthcare providers. We realize that when you are not working money can be tight.
We can provide you with a list of low-cost and no-cost clinics that may be able to help you. You may want to investigate whether you are eligible for Medicaid. In 2018 Nebraska voters approved a measure to expand Medicaid coverage. This expansion covers low-income adults between the ages of 19 and 64.

Your current or recent employer may have programs—such as COBRA—which will help lower your health insurance costs. Also, some are able to borrow from relatives and friends to obtain the health care necessary to support their claim.
