Further the court found that “the ALJ failed to adequately discuss, in the context of Plaintiff’s noncompliance, her inability to afford her insulin and other medications, as he is required to do” and the ALJ compounded his error “by significantly mischaracterizing the records of noncompliance or citing records not in the Record at all.”
The case was remanded.
