Okay, for those ppl that are getting medicaid and medicare, how old are you? My father had a stroke, and his left side is weak, he care for himself and is in a wheelchair. He did get medicaid for 6 months, but now, the state took it away. I don't understand why would they do that? He is considered disabled and he is 53, what do you suggest I do? My father needs help for doctor, medical bills, and care at home. He has gone to the emergency because he is still having trouble and problems with his health. What should I do? Can he still get medicaid or medicare?

Yes.  If you qualified for disability, you are eligible for Medicaid/Medicare.  The type of Medicaid will depend on your age.  Good luck!

I'm told you can, but you're not eligible to apply for Medicaid until 29 months after your initial request for SSD.  Not positive that this is correct though - I'm asking the same question.

You will get medicare 2 months after you are approved. If you get the max amount on your check you have to pay for it. They will deduct that amount from your check.

I am on SSD and that's the only income I have and was told I get to much money and I was not able to get medicaid. I don't understand it but that's what I was told. I do get medicare but not medicaid.

I am receiving Disability benefits that I get direct deposit.  I recently received a check from Social Security but don't know what its for.  I have some back pay due, but I don't think this is it. Because its usually direct

deposited into my account.

Cash it and spend it. If they made a mistake they will get it back I guarantee that.

You can get medicaid with SSi. I think all you can get with disability is medicare and that takes 60 days after you are approved. I am 58 years old and that is all I get.

My father was approved for being disabled, but the ppl said that he cant qualify for medicaid or medicare until six years! What should I do? My mom cant work cuz she is the one caring for him, my father cant either cuz he doesnt have any strength on his left side. He cant even hold a pencil!!! I feel so bad, that he has to go through all of this and he cant get help from the state. Any more suggestions?

Only if your income is low enough.  Have a friend on disability, but he has already paid off his house, so his expenses are lower than others, so he does not get Medicaid.
