Hi - I'm JELAINEP from the Lyme board, but I have a question about Hep. C:
It seems as though I recently ran accross something saying that SSDI has kind of "fast-tracked" certain diseases/illnesses for SSDI approval. But, I can't find "the list" now. I know that Lyme isn't on it but, (believe it or not) I'm helping a friend fill out Medicare paperwork today. He has Hep. C and failed the interfuron treatments.... and I think maybe this was on the "list". It's the LD impaired leading the liver disease impaired into battle with SSDI - haha!
Does anyone have this list? Or can you refer me to a site with the list?
I appreciate any input - I'll check back and also check the Lyme site. I posted this question in both places - Thank you all!
