Claimant's Recent Medical Treatment
What is Form HA-4631?
Form HA-4631 is known as Claimant’s Recent Medical Treatment. If you applied for Social Security Disability benefits and were denied, you have the right to appeal. And a crucial form in any appeal is Form HA-4631.
To appeal your denial, you must complete Form HA-4486 and Form SSA-3441-BK (Disability Report – Appeal).
Once you have submitted these two forms to indicate that you wish to appeal, you will be asked to complete Form HA-4631.
Once you receive your denial letter, it’s important you don’t hesitate to appeal. You have approximately 65 days from the date you receive your denial letter to request your hearing. If you miss the deadline to appeal, the Social Security Administration (SSA) may reject your forms and you’ll have to restart the process by filling out a new application.
What Information Do I Need to Complete Form HA-4631?
On Form HA-4631, you will be asked to list all the doctors that have treated you, their contact information and the dates you received treatment. If you were hospitalized due to your disability, you will also be asked to provide the name of the hospital, the address, why you were hospitalized and the treatment you received.
No matter where you are in the disability process, it’s crucial that you keep track of all your medical records. Doing so will strengthen your case. When you go to your hearing, your medical evidence and work history are vital evidence in your disability case.
