Turning 65 Testimonials Learn About Medicare



Medicare is linked to entitlement to Social Security benefits, but it is possible to get both Medicare and Medicaid.  States pay the Medicare premiums for people who receive SSI benefits if they are also eligible for Medicaid.
If you get SSI and have Medicare, you will also be eligible for Extra Help with Medicare Prescription Drug Coverage without filing a separate application. See the web site at:
