Determining If Chronic Anemia Qualifies For Florida Disability Benefits

Adults who suffer from anemia often do not qualify to receive Florida disability benefits, as this blood disorder is typically treatable. However, there are many people who suffer from chronic anemia and do not improve from treatments. So, how does one know if his adult blood disorder qualifies him to receive Social Security benefits in Florida?

Chronic Anemia Criteria

The Social Security Administration’s blue book indicates that people with chronic anemia have to have a hematocrit at 30 percent or less, which is the percentage of red blood cells in the blood.  Additionally, a person with chronic anemia has to show that he or she has a minimum of one blood transfusion every two months in order to qualify for benefits.

However, if someone has one transfusion every three months on average or has a minimum of three hospital stays in the year prior to their application for Florida disability benefits, that person may be able to receive benefits by building a case to support his or her disability.

There are several different types of blood disorders, and they all affect people differently. Although the Social Security Administration (SSA) may have a set of rules in their listing, not every disorder may be included in their blue book.

There are some reasons that will qualify people automatically for South Florida disability benefits, but other reasons for receiving benefits may need to be reviewed more closely by the SSA.
