Medicare Supplement Plan through Disability Under 65

Medicare and disability

Can I Buy Medicare Supplement insurance if I received Medicare through disability and under 65?

Not all states are obligated by federal law to offer Medicare Supplement plans to under 65 years old indviduals even though they are eligible for Medicare through disbaility. Medicare Supplement carriers in certain states can deny issuing a supplement policy before age 65.

On the other hand, other states must offer and sell Medicare Supplement or Medigap policies to disabled benficiareis under 65. In these states insurance companies have to offer at least one type of Medicare Supplement plans. The cost however in this case is really high, for instance Blue Cross Blue Shield of IL rate of Plan G for medicare benificairy under 65 is the same rate as a benificairy at age 90. The cost of the plan could be more than $500 per month.

Here is a list of the states where insurance carriers must sell at least one type of Medicare supplement plan.

Disability Benificiary and Medicare Coverage:

Everyone eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits is also eligible for Medicare after a 24-month qualifying period. The first 24 months of disability benefit entitlement is the waiting period for Medicare coverage. During this qualifying period for Medicare, the beneficiary may be eligible for health insurance through a former employer. The employer should be contacted for information about health insurance coverage.

How months are counted?

Social Security Adminstration counts one month for each month of disability entitlement.

What happens to Medicare coverage if a beneficiary works?

A beneficiary may receive at least 93 months of hospital and medical insurance after the trial work period as long as she/he still has a disabling impairment. This provision allows health insurance to continue when a beneficiary goes to work and engages in substantial gainful activity. The beneficiary does not pay a premium for hospital insurance. Although cash benefits may cease, the beneficiary has the assurance of continued health insurance.

After premium-free Medicare coverage ends due to work, beneficiaries can purchase Medicare hospital and medical insurance if they continue to have a disability at the end of the 93-month period.

I worked with Tarek to find a suitable Medicare plan for my husband. We got it handled in one phone call. I was so impressed! Now I am becoming eligible for Medicare and worked with Tarek again. He was amazing! We found an affordable plan that meets all of my needs. I highly recommend him and will use his services again in the future.

I was previously working with someone through my franchise company to set up insurance for my employees. Low and behold after weeks of working with her she was not able to complete my process and was not very responsive when I asked her questions. She referred me to Tarek to finish up and he immediately contacted me and got my plan completed within the day! He was super nice and made sure my account was set up and ready to go before we missed our deadline. Highly recommended!

Healthcare.gov can be a little confusing so I called them up for help figuring everything out when I turned 26. Tarek is excellent at what he does. He had everything figured out for me in less than 15 minutes on the phone with him. I was so impressed that he will continue to be my go to guy for anything heath insurance related. I can not recommend him enough.
