Hi Jules,

We haven't met yet, but it sounds like you are going through a lot of stress right now, and I can certainly relate to that! I am sending thoughts and prayers to you and your family. (((Hugs))),

You have been and will continue to be in my thoughts and prayers.  I know you are nervous, and probably scared, too - and that's okay.  You've undoubtedly played out every possible "what if" game in your head all ready. 
A few hours from now it will be out of your hands and into the judges.  If he approves the claim, then wonderful - life gets easier.  If he denies the claim, then you  appeal it (again and again) - and life goes on.
Prayers continue till your husband gains the full disability benefits he is entitled to.  Peace on you both - maybe there be a successful outcome today.

yeah   yeah    Happy Dance  yeah yeah

I'm so pleased this ordeal is over for you!  Was concerned when you didn't post earlier and am delighted to hear your news.

I'd expect Medicare/Medicade enrollment shortly.  My husband got coverage within a month or so of judge's decision, but Part D for prescription coverage is new this year so be sure and ask.

Hope all else is going well, too.  Let us know ...  :-)

vmnak, sorry i kept you all in suspense, but my daughter was also married on saturday and was a very busy and emotional few days......i have heard that you have to be disabled for 2 years before you qualify for medicaid - is that true? also we have a 12 year old daughter at home that is my husbands stepdaughter- will she qualify for a benefit also?

Jules, Sorry .. I don't have any experience with either of the issues you raise.  But, I always have thoughts, lol.
It wouldn't make sense for someone on disability to have to wait for Medicaide coverage.  Husband's Medicare kicked in along with disability - if yours doesn't, you need to find out why.
If stepdaughter is part of the family for tax purposes, etc, then I'd expect her to be included.  I've no idea what the family may be entitled to, but she's part of the family.
Congrats to all on recent wedding - am sure it was lovely.  :-)

Hi Ya Jules, I am so glad your husband was approved for disability.  I do believe that once someone is approved for disability that they automatically get Medicaid coverage if their state has a Medicaid program.  As for Medicare he will also be able to get that but it wont kick in until 24 months after the official date of disability.  You should be soon getting paperwork that outlines these things hopefully.  If you don’t you may want to give your local family services office a call and see if there is anything you need to do to get the ball rolling quicker.

Congrats on your daughters wedding! :-)

Medicare is federally funded...there are two parts to it (well now three)
part A which is free and pays for hospitalizations, nursing home care and in-home nursing if needed
part B is the part that everyone has to pay a small payment out of their SSDI check for each month..usually like 85.00 dollars I think.  This pays for doctor visits and such but it has co-payments, and deductibles to it just like regular insurance does.
Now there is a Part D to Medicare and that is the prescription coverage and they havent quite worked out all the kinks yet...so I am told.  But you also pay every month for this too, and have co-payments on your meds as well.
 
Medicaid is a state run program and is generated from state and federal tax dollars.  There are several states in the US that dont have a medicaid program though...Like here in Missouri where I live our governer has passed a bill saying that our Medicaid program will end in 2008.  Anyway, If you are lucky to get both medicare and medicaid and then medicaid will pay for pretty much of everything that medicare doesnt...you just may have to pay a few dollars for prescriptions.  In that case I wouldnt sign up for Part D on Medicare (depending on where you stand on medicaid) as you may be able to save yourselves 90.00 a month.  This is why it is important to find out where medicaid is at and what is going on.  Perhaps your disability lawyer can point you in the right direction?
