What is Medicare?

Medicare is a federal health insurance program designed for individuals 65 or older and for younger people with certain disabilities, including end stage renal disease. We at Lanier Law Group, P.A. have extensive experience helping Winston-Salem clients with Medicare and Social Security Disability.

If you qualify for Social Security Disability, you automatically receive Medicare two years after the first month you are eligible for SSD benefits. If your claim for benefits is denied, our lawyers in Greensboro for Social Security disability may be able to help you file an appeal.

What is Medicaid?

Medicaid is a health insurance program financed by the state and federal governments. It is designed for low-income people. Not everyone who applies for Medicaid qualifies. Here are the requirements for receiving Medicaid in North Carolina:

  • You must be a resident of North Carolina
  • You must have low income
  • You must also be one of the following:
    • Pregnant
    • Blind
    • Disabled
    • Have a disabled family member in your home
    • Be the parent or guardian of a child younger than 19
    • Be 65 or older

If you are unsure of whether you are eligible to receive Medicare or Medicaid, you should speak to a knowledgeable lawyer. Our attorneys can review your Social Security Disability case and advise you of your options. We are willing to sit down in any of our North Carolina offices and walk you through the most common reasons for denial when it comes to SSDI and Medicare / Medicaid.
