    Question Out of insurance

    Question?
    I have run my LTD Ins as soon as the SSD came on line 11/08 as Has cobra been paid but has lost time on 6/6.
    Is there somthing that I might look into to cover these next 6 months before the Midicare runs starts as 11/10?
    thanks for any thoughts

    Been there too, it was a long frightful wait but eventually I got full time work and got benefits. Wish you both luck and good health.

    One option might be to apply for Medicaid until Medicare kicks in . You would probably have a spend down if you qualify and that would be determined in part by how much Social Security you receive ( SSDI I assume).

    It's not the best but would help cover if anything major / catastrophic came up.

    good luck. perhaps there are some other options from others who have been in a similar situation.
