Thomas was born prematurely. Sadly, medical bills quickly rose and benefit denials emerged for the family. The hospital referred the family to an ABC for Health advocate. Due to low birth weight and age, Thomas should have qualified for Social Security SSI benefits. However, paperwork issues led Social Security to reject the application.
Much to the financial and emotional relief of the family, ABC for Health staff helped them cut through the paperwork and bureaucratic red tape to secure the needed benefits and coverage for Thomas!
