Important Medicare Information
Get the Facts from Our Social Security Disability Lawyers
There is a 29 month waiting period from the date that
SSDI benefits were granted for Medicare to begin. If your disability onset
date was back far enough in time, you may have already served part or
all of the 2 year waiting period. Claims that have to go through the appeals
process can take up to 2 years to reach a final decision. That time is
taken into account when calculating the 2 year waiting period. Social
Security rules allow for a maximum of 12 months of retroactive benefits.
However, there are a few exceptions to the 2 year waiting period. Those
claimants with end stage renal disease kidney failure and those who require
ongoing dialysis or a kidney transplant can receive Medicare benefits
in the 3rd month after their dialysis began. Also, those who suffer from
amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) can also collect Medicare benefits
as soon as they are eligible.
