SSDI - Have to have a "Limited Exam"???

Has anyone ever heard of this? I've had a Mental Exam(A month ago), and a Memory Exam (27th of April) and now I got a letter today from SSDI saying they set an appointment for a "Limited Exam" with a place called Meridian Diagnostics.  Any input would help as I have looked online everywhere and have found nothing.



  • I'd suggest you do a search on "Consultative Examinations".

    If you are applying for SSDI, no matter what exam they want, you need to be there. 
    Like EMS Guy said, search the above, I did and it was very interesting.

  • I read up on Consultative exams, and yes, I am in the process of applying for SSDI.  I already had an FCE, Mental Exam, Memory Exam, so I am wondering what on earth they want to do/know with this one.  The Consultative sounds a great deal like FCE combined with medical summary of what's going on with you - is it to get their assessment of my medical condition?

  • From what I've learned, it's to answer questions that none of the other examinations have been able to answer.  I've never been through one, so from a personal standpoint, I'm not sure what they will dwell upon.  Given what you have at stake here, I'd consult with a disability lawyer to make sure you know what to expect and perhaps get representation.  I'm not a big lawyer fan, but when it comes time to disability, they can certainly help!
