At some point last month, Disability Determination Services here in Oregon informed me that they didn’t actually keep the report from my two-hour “consultive exam” which Social Security used to deny I was disabled, and gave me the name of a person at the Social Security Administration to whom they’d forwarded my request. Promptly, I recycled the letter without making note of the name. Yesterday I emailed the Department of Human Services ombuds address about it, and lo and behold this morning I’d already received a reply with the name and contact information I’d recycled. So, let’s see how long it takes to get my own medical record out of the SSA.

ETA: I should note that the exam took place in November of 2018. It’s been over a year and I’ve still not been given access to this record, despite, I swear, filling out a form at the exam saying I wanted a copy.
