Do I get medical coverage if I am approved for Social Security disability?

Yes. Claimant approved for Social Security disability receive Medicare after receiving disability benefits for two years (24 months). All claimant approved for benefits receive nothing for the 5 months after their onset date. After five months benefits begin and after two years of receiving benefits they will become eligible for Medicare. For many disabled individuals, Medicare is the more important benefit because without it there is no chance to obtain medical coverage.
