    You could arrange to have your check direct deposited in a Dominican bank, but it wouldn't be necessary. A lot of expats keep their funds in banks in their country of origin and pay bills by check or automatic transfer, withdrawing cash from an ATM machine or at a Dominican bank using a debit card.

    The second part may be harder. If what you are concerned about is a Social Security disability review, I suspect you may need to return to the US and be assessed by a doctor there, but it's possible they may accept an assessment from a Dominican Doctor.
