Hi, my name is Chad Cason and I specialize in insurance and one of the common questions that I get is how do I qualify for Medicare and in this video I am going to show you how to do that.
To qualify for Medicare you must be a U.S. Citizen or be a Permanent Legal Resident for the past five years. Now these are not the only criteria to qualify you for Medicare but you must have these.
In addition, one of the ways that you qualify for Medicare is that you have to be 65 or older and qualify for social security which means that you’ve paid into Social Security and you are at the correct age to begin receiving those benefits.
If you’re permanently disabled you don’t have to be over age 65 to qualify for Medicare. You can be under age 65 but you have to have been receiving disability benefits for at least two years.
There’s a couple of diseases that can also lead to being eligible for Medicare. One of those can be end-stage renal disease which is basically permanent kidney failure and the other would be Lou Gehrig’s disease.
Once you qualify for Medicare and you’ve signed up for Medicare, you’re only going to have 80% coverage for your hospital and medical coverage. That’s it. My goal for you is to have 100% coverage. And the way that you do that is to have a Medicare Supplement Insurance Plan. What I have done is make another video on how to find the best Medicare Supplement Insurance plan so that you can have that 100% coverage.
