MEDICARE DISABILITY BENEFITS AND YOU Archive

I’M NOT YET 65, CAN I GET MEDICARE BENEFITS?

There are only 3 ways you can get Medicare coverage if you are under 65.

In addition to being a U.S. citizen or having your resident visa, and having lived in the U.S. for five years in a row; you must fall into one of the following categories:

1. Have a disability and be receiving Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) for more than 24 months;

2. Be diagnosed with End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD);

3. Be diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease.

Note: Because Social Security eligibility rules are complex, you should call Social Security at 800-772-1213 to get the most accurate information regarding your particular situation.

AFTER YOU BEGIN YOUR MEDICARE DISABILITY BENEFITS, MY PART D USA CAN HELP YOU FIND A PART D PLAN THAT WILL COVER ALL YOUR DRUGS AND HELP YOU FIND LOW-COST OR NO PREMIUM HEALTH CARE COVERAGE.

YOU MAY ALSO BE ELIGIBLE FOR PART D DRUG ASSISTANCE WHICH MEANS YOU WOULD HAVE NO PREMIUM OR “DONUT HOLE”.
