Social Security will often schedule a claimant for what is called a consultative examination. They might even schedule you for multiple! Often, there is one physical examination and one psychological examination. These examinations are done by doctors who Social Security pays, so you will not be expected to pay a co-pay or anything at all for the visit, or for any x-rays or tests they may do. Social Security sends claimants to these examinations to get more evidence in the file so they have enough evidence to make a decision, so if you are scheduled for consultative examinations, it is very important you attend them!
