Medicare and disability

February 1, 2009 by admin

From :

We automatically enroll you in Medicare after you get disability benefits for two years. Medicare has two parts -- hospital insurance and medical insurance.

  • Hospital insurance helps pay for inpatient hospital bills and some follow-up care. The taxes you paid while you were working financed this coverage, so it is free.
  • Medical insurance helps pay doctors' bills, outpatient hospital care and other medical services. You will need to pay a monthly premium for this coverage if you want it.

Most people have both parts of Medicare. If you have questions about this coverage, you can contact Medicare toll-free at 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227)
