Having an ALJ hearing does not automatically mean you will get a decision yet. Sometimes the ALJ will decide after the hearing that additional evidence is needed. The ALJ may arrange for you to attend a post-hearing consultative evaluation with a medical expert. If that happens, you will receive a copy of the report that is generated from the evaluation and be allowed to submit any comments you have about it. You may also request a supplemental hearing. Additionally, the ALJ may schedule a supplemental hearing on his or her own accord for the purpose of taking medical expert testimony. It is not uncommon to have two or even more ALJ hearings before receiving a decision.
