OLD Form DSS-486T - Medical Report for Determination of Disability (see note) Download
DSS-486T (OLD) - Medical Report for Determination of Disability - best version.pdf
This is the OLD form used to prove disability for an applicant who has not already been found disabled by SSA. This includes people who are applying for Medicaid in the DAB (aka "SSI-related") category, for MBI-WPD, or to use an SNT to shield excess income or resources. It was revised in June 2012 - see new form posted at http://wnylc.com/health/entry/134/. The form revised in June 2012 shortens this form from the former 25-page form two a 2-page form, which will be less intimidating to doctors.

The old form consisted of numerous attachments that elicited information about the different body systems, such as a musculoskeletal or cardiac impairments. Those former attachments, while burdensome, were helpful to show the criteria for "meeting the listings"-- Step Three in the sequential evaluation process. While no longer required, you might find some of these attachments helpful as a guide for the physician to provide information about particular conditions.
