Social Security Disability Issues: Learn About Obtaining Medical Benefits

Obviously, medical treatment is very vital to you if you are unwell, wounded, or incapacitated. You might be concerned about how you’ll afford the treatment you need. The good news is that Medicare can provide health insurance to Social Security Disability recipients. There is a waiting time, which is bad news.

Keep reading to learn about obtaining medical benefits. If you have not yet applied for Social Security Disability Insurance, learn about filing a disability claim and how the right attorney could help you. Then contact PLBSH at (800) 435-7542 to schedule a consultation.

Medicare and SSD Benefits

Most people won’t start receiving Medicare benefits until 24 months after being eligible for Social Security Disability payments for the first time. However, a significant chunk of this 24-month waiting period will have passed by the time you go through the drawn-out SSD application and approval procedure.

Keep in mind that SSD permits the payment of retroactive payments up to 12 months after your first application. You may be eligible for Medicare after this period. This could end up paying for medical costs you incurred while you waited for your application to be approved. However, you do not want to incur medical costs if you cannot know they will be repaid. This can be a complex situation and working with an attorney can help you navigate to determine the best move forward.

What Can I Do While I Await Medical Benefits from My SSD?

While you wait for your Social Security Disability benefits to be granted, if your income is low enough, you could be eligible for Medicaid. This is a different process that can have a faster result. Your SSD attorney can help you understand if this is the right option for you.
