Medicare and Disability

Medicare is also for people with disabilities. Nearly 8 million people with disabilities receive Medicare and are under the age of 65. People receiving Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) will qualify for Medicare after completing a two year waiting period after they first receive benefits. To be more exact, because there is a 5 month waiting period after you are first determined to be disabled ♿ you will be eligible 29 months after the onset date of your disability. There are 2 conditions that don’t have the 24 month waiting period. One is End-stage renal disease. These are persons who are receiving dialysis treatment for kidney failure or getting a kidney transplant. The second condition is Lou Gehrig’s disease or ALS.
