i just wanted to thank all of you for all of your thoughts and prayers.....they worked!!!!! my husband was approved for his disability the same day that we went to court hearing does anyone know if he now will get medicaid or if there is a wait for that? they said that it would be several months before the checks start coming in - but hey----we got approved!!!!!! again thanks to all of you for keeping us in your thoughts and prayers
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 ...
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.
thanks elisha, it was a very happy day for me to see my daughter and new son in law so very happy!!!!!!! what is the difference in medicaid and medicare? this all very new to me.
