Champion Disability Advocates for SSI/SSDI Income Benefits
Champion Disability is a service for our Eligibility Enrollment Solutions clients that leverages Human Arc’s patient‐centric, compassionate approach to provide disability screening and Supplemental Security (SSI) or Social Security Disability Income (SSDI) enrollment support for hospital patients with disabilities. For providers, this can mean additional Medicaid reimbursement, higher DSH percentages, and even significant cost benefits of 340B status.
At no additional cost to providers, Champion Disability Advocates specialists:
- Screen hospital patients and former patients for Social Security Administration (SSA) disability benefits and educate them about the SSI/SSDI enrollment process.
- Guide potentially eligible patients and former patients through the application process from beginning to end—even through required hearings and appeals.
- Follow up with the Social Security Administration to get disability determinations.
Our specialists are more successful getting initial SSI application approvals than others who apply on their own or with assistance—which translates to a higher rate of success for you and your patients.
The Champion Disability Advocates Edge
Champion Disability Advocates provides for hospitals an unmatched array of benefits by connecting patients with SSI/SSDI benefits.
No Cost to Providers.
With this service, there is no fee to providers. Champion Disability Advocates receives a fee only after identifying and successfully enrolling patients—and only through the back-award to the patient. This remuneration is received by our company from the government, not from billing the patient or his/her healthcare provider.
Incremental Reimbursement Potential.
Enrolling a few hundred patients in SSI can lead to millions in reimbursement.
Champion Disability Advocates can provide benefit to all patient groups, including high-volume, low-dollar outpatients, and employs the same disability criteria the SSA uses.

Benefits to Your Patients
