Medicare and Health Insurance
Persons 65 years of age and older and persons who have a disability are entitled to Medicare benefits through the Social Security Administration. These benefits cover hospitalization, visits to the doctor, rehabilitation and therapy, and hospice services to name a few. It is also necessary for the insured to have a supplemental Medicare or medigap policy to cover the 20% Medicare co-pay. In 2006, Medicare began offering an additional benefit to cover prescription drugs (Part D). We assist clients when disputes arise between the disabled Medicare insured under the SSI and SSDI programs and the Medicare administrator regarding the availability and eligibility of benefits.
