Your Right to Medicare Benefits When Receiving Social Security Disability

Medicare is a medical care program designed to offer health care services to senior citizens and people who qualify for Social Security Disability. In most cases, a person who qualifies for Social Security Disability benefits will also qualify for Medicare benefits after a two year initial waiting period. In certain cases where a person has a rare and debilitating disease, Medicare benefits may be awarded immediately upon having your Social Security Disability claim accepted. These conditions include Lou Gehrig's Disease (ALS) and serious kidney disease such as end stage renal disease or people who need kidney transplants. 

Once you qualify for Medicare based on Social Security Disability Insurance, you will continue to be eligible for Medicare as long as you are still considered disabled and continue to receive Social Security Disability benefits. Once you are no longer considered disabled, you are no longer eligible for Medicare benefits.
