Medical Care For Life: When Your Injury Or Disability Takes A Permanent Toll
If you are awarded Social Security Disability benefits (SSDI or SSI), you may be able to receive long-term health benefits — medical care for life — from the federal government through Medicare, though in many cases there is a two-year waiting period before coverage starts.
Medicare is a large, comprehensive system of health care plans that include hospitalization, outpatient care, prescription drugs, laboratory and home health care services, among many others, that vary from person to person. Generally speaking, Medicare coverage is different from workers’ comp coverage in that Medicare provides general coverage rather than being restricted to work-related injuries or illnesses.
For people with serious medical complications and disability, permanent medical care through Medicare is a fantastic option. To find out how to file for eligibility, speak with an attorney today.
What Happens If Medicare Denies A Claim?
If Medicare denies a claim for a hospital stay or doctor visit, you have the right to appeal. Appeals can be complicated and lengthy processes. They must be heard before an administrative law judge, and a successful appeal requires you to know the ins and outs of Medicare regulations. You should hire an attorney to make your appeal.
