Various scenarios of interplay between Social Security Disability (SSD) or Supplementary Security Income (SSI) benefits and health insurance or private disability insurance are best understood with the help of an experienced SSD attorney. Specific rules apply with regard to SSD benefits and insurance such as:

  • Medicare
  • Medicaid
  • Private health insurance
  • Private disability insurance

Experienced Attorneys On Your Side

At Jeffrey A. Rabin & Associates, Ltd., we bring more than 30 years of experience to the table as we analyze each new client’s case and make appropriate recommendations. We can help you understand how your SSD or SSI benefits and your health insurance benefits may impact each other. We can guide you through processes including new rules brought about by the Affordable Care Act (ACA), which is set to be fully implemented in the near future.

A critical piece of information for most clients is that once you qualify for SSD benefits, you will then qualify for Medicare 29 months after your disability began. This is not dependent on your date of application for SSD, but rather, on when you became disabled. This is another example of many as to why it is important to communicate early — and clearly — with doctors about your disabling condition.
