Does Cardiovascular Disease Qualify for Disability?

When you have a cardiovascular disease, it affects every part of your life. It can rob you of the strength you need to keep working.

You also need constant—and expensive—medical care.

If you can’t hold on to a job with health insurance, you wonder how you’ll pay your bills. You wonder how you’ll even afford basic needs.

That last thing you need with heart problems is more stress.

Getting monthly checks from Social Security Disability, and qualifying for the Medicare coverage that comes with it, could free you to focus on your health.

But the government makes the process hard. The lawyers at Horenstein, Nicholson & Blumenthal have the experience to guide you through.

We’ve helped thousands of people in Ohio for more than 40 years, including people who with cardiovascular disease disabilities.

You can be the next to say “Helping me, that’s HNB.”

Which Heart Conditions Qualify Me for Benefits?

Cardiovascular diseases include many individual conditions, such as these:

  • Aneurysm of aorta or major branches
  • Arrhythmia
  • Chronic venous insufficiency
  • Congestive heart failure
  • Heart transplant
  • Ischemic heart disease
  • Peripheral arterial disease
  • Recurrent arrhythmias
  • Stroke
  • Symptomatic congenital heart disease

A challenge in winning disability benefits for heart disease is that these conditions vary greatly in their severity. The bottom line is that your condition must be severe enough to rule out working.

Social Security will look for problems like these:

  • Poor functioning of your circulatory system
  • Poor functioning of a major heart chamber
  • Pain from constricted blood flow
  • Loss of consciousness due to lack of oxygen reaching the brain
  • Pale or blue skin color
  • Damage to other body systems caused by damaged veins or arteries

Showing that you experience symptoms like fatigue, shortness of breath, chest discomfort, heart palpitations and lightheadedness could be a major part of your disability claim.

But it’s hard to follow all the technical medical terms and Social Security rules that you need to make your case.

How Do I Prove My Cardiovascular Disease Qualifies for Disability?

Records you get from your medical treatment always form the core of your disability claim.
These are the kinds of evidence you’ll need to submit:

  • Electrocardiogram (ECG) reports
  • Imaging of your heart
  • Stress test results
  • Physical exam reports
  • Exercise tests, including walking, bicycling and lifting
  • Reports on how your heart has responded to treatment
  • Reports on how your condition affects your daily activities

When you’re struggling with a cardiovascular disease, your energy level is not what you need to gather all these materials.
