They do automatically put you with Part A and Part B, but you have the option to change it. I got the paperwork last Friday and it doesn't become effective until 9/1/10.

I know a little because i have not keep up with medicare. However, i should mention about it so you all can ask your local SSA about medicare. Anyone of you who are on SS disability (SSD). The following 24 months, then the medicare part b will be put on automatically. Unless anyone of your family who have health insurance that you are under them then let SSA know and get a proper form to sign, not to choose part B. All I need you all to check with SSA about it. If anyone of you who does not have health insurance from your family like spouse and decide not to take medicare part B then the next year or two year or three year you change your mind and you want medicare part B BACK, then the costs will be higher than the regular cost. That's important for you all to ask them if you decide not to choose part B and ask them what happen to you in the future. SO it helps you guys to decide about taking medicare part B or not if you all don't have health insurance through spouses'.



Unless you all happen to be on SSI then, it depends on which states or age that medicare part b will be covered due to the low income resource.

that's all I can say for now. i need to re polish on my knowledges of this area. eh.

I am on my hubby's insurance, but the cost of it is so expensive and the deductible is sky-high. We were going to drop me from his policy to drop his cost by half and let me use the Medicare, but now, since he is changing jobs and will have better insurance at a lower cost, I will have to see. I think for now, I will plan on keeping it and check my options and see what I want to do after he gets his benefits at the new job.

I agree about the costs that is pretty high. Have you told your local SSA about it and find out if you drop out the medicare part b and go back to your hubby's insurance and then drop the insurance then go back to medicare part b. willit become higher more than the regular costs of the mediare part b? Just keep that in mind about the medicare b if you have already had part b then drop it then a few years later, then go back to part b, will it be higher or not. just be aware about it

*smh* Wow. That's unbelievable. So the Govt guts people on SSDI and others even more by taking their money of the income out to pay for access to medicare.

Hello, I have a question. I'm new to the forum. My son is deaf. He received a CI about 5 years ago. About 4 years ago, I went to see if I could get SSI for him, they said I made to much money. Does this sound right? Is there any assistance I could get, I just had to buy 2 new batteries which cost me $4oo. Your help is greatly appreciated.

Even if you could, why would you want to disclose it in the first place? Anonymous or not.

You might want to contact the CI manufacturer to see if they help with remibursement programs (insurance). I finally got Medicare to pay for my CI batteries now......and appreciate that very much.

My daughter used to be on SSI for her speech related issues. The amount she got was based on earnings my husband & I earned at the time. She lost her SSI after 3 years when she went in for re-testing and they claimed she had a "75% understandability of her speech and was therefore not considered disabled". That was when she was ages 5-8. She is now 16, and her speech is still just as bad and she has other issues. I am not going to try again as it was too much of a hassle to buy her things on a separate receipt and keeping track of everything and sending in the receipts and her bank statement each month.

If your resource make over 2,000 per monthly then your son may not get SSI. Have you ask medicaid dept about it?

Oh thats awesome. i guess it depends on which states that can provide a remibursement programs. But it's good for everyone to read this and they can check their local ssa and medicare/medicaid depts to see if they can provides.

Don't know about working part time, but you do have to wait 2 years before you can get Medicare, but Medicaid you can get usually whenever, as long as you qualify. I don't qualify for Medicaid and I will be getting my Medicare effective September 2010.

Exactually!!!! I tried to help a deaf lady get a job that would pay her pre-taxes $2000 a month, she Responded: "I would rather get $650 from SSI and not have to go through the trouble of getting up early and getting to work on a bus and then taking the bus home with all those hearing people" and that is the exact quote from her....Lazy Bitch...Good For Nothing....and all my effort for nothing, that's the thanks I get.

Sad, eh?

I couldn't image only 650 dollars a month from SSI, that is less than what I am paying for housing!

If you want accurate information, do not ask people from bars, and here too. Go to SSA office and ask them these questions because I found out each cases are treated different, so what you get answer from bars or here the chances are you may get wrong answer.

Other reason I can see and I am guilty one. I used to be like her. Not because of getting up, dealing with bus as I always own vehicle. I hate bus, anyway the reason I have been avoiding looking for job for 18 years is because health insurance. What I found out that it is only temporary.

Exactly what I have heard from someone as well. Sad!

One guy (is on SSI) looked at me, and said; "you are not from America, and how come you travel overseas two/three times every year?" My response was; work.

He said Lucky you, I should find a job soon.

It was two years ago, and now he still on SSI.
