If someone is awarded social security in 2016, can they choose to keep a private insurance plan through the Affordable Care Act or is it mandatory that they take Medicare? Am not even certain which plan would be better or cheaper at this point but am just wondering if you have a choice?
Was also curious what happens if you are on a plan with other family members?
I don't know except that, for those given Medicare for disability, I believe there is a 2 year wait time (from the time you applied for disability) before you can start Medicare.
Why is it every time Medicare comes up, I only see a bunch of words that don't seem to make any sense together?
"Hold harmless", whaaat???
There is a waiting period but by the time you wait for a hearing etc, it's usually up. I started Medicare the same month I was approved for SSDI.
