Free or Low Cost Healthcare Assistance in Hillsborough County – Tampa
Many of my clients in Tampa that are applying for disability insurance benefits find themselves in such a bad financial situation that they cannot afford to continue seeing a doctor. This is very bad for their case, because every disability insurance plan requires you to provide evidence of your disability from a doctor to be approved. It is a horrible Catch-22.
