<<I am in the process of filing with private insurance
disability and also Social Security because of a
chronic and eventually fatal liver disease. Do you
know if the Social Security has a list of conditions
that automatically get disability the first time. If so, how could I see the list? I have heard you have to apply several time to be accepted>>

Sorry to hear about your illness. I doubt there is any such list. Most disability determination forms I get have questions that have little to do with the illness my patient has. That may in part account for why it takes so long to get through the process. Best wishes.
