If you are fortunate enough to qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), then after 24 months of coverage, you are also eligible for Medicare.
Per the Medicare website:
“Medicare Part A helps cover your inpatient care in hospitals, critical access hospitals and skilled nursing facilities. It also covers hospice care and some home health care. Medicare Part B helps cover your doctors’ services, outpatient hospital care, and some other medical services that Medicare Part A doesn’t cover, such as some of the services of physical and occupational therapists, and some home health care. Medicare Part B helps pay for these covered services and supplies when they are medically necessary.”
You can get more information by visiting www.socialsecurity.gov, by calling Social Security at 1-800-772-1213, or by visiting or calling your local Social Security office.
