When does your medicare start if you are on disability?



 
The following question was sent in by a visitor to the site:

"Hello, I recently was found disabled by a judge at my SSDI hearing who agreed with the start of my disability. Is the Medicare that automatically starts 2 years after you've been getting disability payments backtracked to that start date of actually disability. Or is it two years out from the date of your actual first monthly payment?"

To answer your question, it is two years from the date of your actual MOE, month of entitlement, for payment. For example, a person would be entitled in 03/19 if their approved onset was in 10/16. This is due to the five month waiting period for which there is no payment.
