What are Hematological Disorders and how does the Social Security Administration (SSA) evaluate this disorder?
Hematological disorders are blood disorders. This includes sickle cell disease, chronic anemia, and other blood disorders including but not limited to leukemia and hemophilia.
Generally, the SSA evaluates hematological disorders on the condition continuing to exist for at least three months following initiation of treatment. The laboratory findings cited must reflect the values reported on more than one examination over that 3-month period. Medically acceptable imaging includes, but is not limited to:
- x-ray imaging
- computerized axial tomography (CAT scan)
- magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
- radionuclear bone scans
