The War on Emergency Health Care Costs

Monday, November 19, 2018

A new class-action lawsuit against the Department of Veterans Affairs is currently underway as more than 700,000 veterans fight their eligibility for reimbursements of unpaid medical bills relating to emergency health care. The fight, which has been in the works for over eight years between VA and veteran advocates, is the first of its kind since a federal court ruling in August allowed veterans to file lawsuits against the department as a class, rather than individuals. The lawsuit, brought on after the VA executed a regulation rewrite, grants the VA ability to avoid reimbursement of all non-VA emergency health care […]

However, the death from cancer last week of Diane DiGiacomo, an ASPCA  special investigator who helped rescue animals around Ground Zero after the 9/11 attacks, reminds us that those of us who are not victims of workplace illnesses and death indeed have much to be grateful for. Rest in peace Diane. Just a week before the 54 year old DiGiacomo died of the multiple cancers that ravaged her body, a New York […]

Social Security Disability Firm Binder & Binder Prepares for Bankruptcy

Monday, December 15, 2014

  “The bigger they are, the harder they fall.”  As reported originally in the Wall Street Journal, Binder & Binder, one of America’s largest Social Security Disability Advocate corporations is preparing for possible bankruptcy this week. The company is facing roughly $40 million dollars in debt due in part to the expensive and ubiquitous late night commercials featuring Charlie Binder in his infamous cowboy hat. In addition, the company is getting squeezed due to shrinking demand for its services and greater government scrutiny of Social Security disability claims. Binder & Binder was once a small Long Island law firm founded by brothers […]

A new study published in the Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases journal reported that low back pain is a leading cause of disability not only in the United States, but worldwide. 1 out of every 10 people suffer from some type of low back pain.

Friday, October 18, 2013

the settlement in Padro v. Astrue (Colvin) grants over 4000 disability claimants who were unfairly denied benefits by five rogue judges in Queens, NY the right to new hearings before different and independent judges.

Finally, all future decisions by these five judges will be monitored by a special unit within the Social Security Administration for 30 months into the future. So there Mr. “Disability is easy to get” Kroft – stick this decision in your pipe and smoke it!

Social Security Disability is Never Easy to Get in New York and Long Island

Tuesday, July 16, 2013

A few important nuggets of truth remained in my letter which will hopefully resonate with most New Yorkers. According to Social Security stastistics, the grim fact is that 1 in 5 male and 1 in 7 female disability recipients die within 5 years of being granted benefits. So if the average age that someone receives disability payments is 55, the fact is that many will never collect a dime of regular Social Security retirement benefits. This saves Social Security a ton of cash!
