Medicare after being approved for ssdi

#1

Can anyone tell me how long it takes to be approved for medicare after being approved for ssdi? My daughter is in the last stage before a decision is made. I really feel like she will get it. Any info will be appreciated.

In my daughter’s case, the approval date for her SSI was the start date of her medicaid. I believe it is automatically done when she gets SSI (or it was in our case). I am not sure about medicare though. The whole process for us took about 3 months from the application to approval. She also qualifies for medicaid through the medically dependent children’s program. Hope this helps and you hear something for them soon regarding her case!
