Here's some information regarding Medicare qualifications.
Generally, if you are a U.S. citizen or a legal permanent resident of at least 5 continuous years, you are eligible for Original Medicare (Parts A and B). Now, let's dive into the specifics:
- If you are 65 years or older and eligible for Social Security, you automatically qualify for Original Medicare.
- If you are under 65 years old and permanently disabled, receiving disability benefits from either Social Security or the Railroad Retirement Board, you are also eligible for Original Medicare.
- In the case of end-stage renal disease (ESRD), you are eligible for Original Medicare.
- Lastly, if you have ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis), also known as Lou Gehrig's disease, you are qualified for Original Medicare.
These qualifications serve as a guideline to determine your eligibility for Medicare. If you meet any of the criteria mentioned above, you can confidently apply for Medicare coverage.
