I am not sure, but here is a phone # I found on the web. Call SSI admin, they will help you. Let me knwo what they say, I am curious. If this person is seeking medicla treatment, you shoudl ask about medicare as well. Even if you have a primary mdical insurance policy, medicare will pay the remaining balance. Good Luck!!
