There are two types of programs available to people who are experiencing troubled times as a result of a disability, whether mental, physical, or emotional and who have lost their job. Medicaid is a government program based on financial need and disability. You may apply for Medicaid right away, and is usually awarded upon approval of a SSI claim. It is not dependent on your SSDI disability claim, but is considered separately and is calculated on your financial situation. Since Medicaid does not pay a substantial amount to health care providers, you may have problems finding physicians who accept Medicaid patients.
Medicare is another government program, available to those who qualify for social security disability benefits. Unfortunately, Medicare benefits are not administered until you have been receiving SSDI benefits for 29 months, although benefits can be awarded retroactively. A deduction could be made for premiums from your disability benefits check, and there are other options available including Medicare Part D, which pays for medications. There are many combinations of the two, depending on your financial need and status of your disability claim. A disability advocate can explain to you what is available and advise the best choice for your particular situation.
