Not speaking from my own experience but I've known other people who got disability and were eligible for medicaid due to their disability. I don't know how long it takes to get it after you apply.

PNE since 2002. Started from weightlifting. PNE surgery from Dr. Bautrant, Oct 2004. Pain now is usually a 0 and I can sit for hours on certain chairs. No longer take medication for PNE. Can work full time and do "The Firm" exercise program. 99% cured from PGAD. PNE surgery was right for me but it might not be for you. Do your research.

I got Medicare, not Medicaid. I forget how long it took. One would get Medicaid if one did not have any savings.

Does it depend on your age, too, Ray? Don't you have to be 60-something to get medicare?

You get medicare after 2 years being on disability. Being on disability is like receiving social security but at any age.
