Missing Out On Medicare
Posted in: Medicare/Medicaid on March 14th, 2012

medicareMedicare is a health insurance program that is designed to help cover medical costs for those over the age of 65 or with qualifying disabilities. Unlike the highly sought after Social Security Disability benefits, many Americans are unaware of their eligibility or qualifying status. It turns out that there are thousands of Americans in need who are without health insurance simply because they do not know the standards and procedures associated with Medicare benefits.

Get Covered

Every day, more than 11,000 Americans become eligible for Medicare simply by turning 65 years old. While this isn’t the only qualifying mark, it does paint a picture of how many people could be missing out on a very crucial benefit. Anyone already receiving Social Security benefits is most likely already receiving, or at least eligible for, Medicare. However, this doesn’t mean that they are using the program to its fullest potential.

For those who are not already receiving Social Security benefits, applying for Medicare may be well worth the time and effort. While it is difficult to pin down specific requirements for qualifying for Medicare outside of the age of 65, there are a few ways to help determine one’s chances of securing benefits. First, anyone over the age of 65 is automatically eligible for Medicare regardless of their physical condition or disability status. Second, those under the age of 65 must meet certain disability requirements. This is the tricky part as not all disabilities qualify for Medicare coverage. However, meeting the eligibility criteria for disability insurance is a good indicator of chances for Medicare coverage.
