Does Social Security disability pay for medicine prescriptions?




 
Social Security disability is a monetary benefit and does not pay for medication or other healthcare needs. However, if you are entitled to Social Security disability then you may be entitled to Medicare part A, Medicare part B, or Medicare part D.

Medicare coverage will begin two years after your first month of entitlement to Social Security disability (translation: twenty-five months). You will receive part A for free. However, part B and D may involve a premium, although, if you have low income and resources, premiums may be paid by the state you reside in.

Also, the Social Security Administration may subsidize your Medicare part D coverage if you are under certain income and resource limits. Some social security disability recipients, even though they do not qualify for SSI, may potentially still qualify for Medicaid through their state if the income and resource limits are low enough. Medicaid, of course, provides for medicine and other healthcare.
