Medicare & Medicaid Overview
If you have suffered an injury that is preventing you from working, receiving proper medical care is a necessity. Unfortunately, the cost of medical treatment may not fit within your limited budget. If you are without health insurance due to your inability to work, you may feel like you are in a dire situation with nowhere to turn.
At Crowe & Shanahan in St. Louis, we understand the challenges facing injured and disabled workers in eastern Missouri and southern Illinois. While our attorneys do not represent people on Medicare and Medicaid claims, we are familiar with both systems. We also stay current on the community health centers for people with little or no income throughout the region.
Medicare And Medicaid Eligibility
If you are receiving Social Security Disability Insurance, you can begin to receive Medicare benefits at any age after drawing 24 months of payments from the beginning of your back pay. If you are receiving Supplemental Security Income, you automatically qualify for health benefits through Medicaid.
