You can become eligible for Medicare Part A & B & D after 24 months of receiving Social Security Disability Insurance benefits. However, people make mistakes from that point, and the Social Security Administration’s communications of rights and options may not be sufficient for you to understand that the Late Enrollment Penalties “calculation period” for Part B & Part D have started.
So either a) you do not have health insurance and creditable coverage for prescriptions, subjecting you to the permanent Late Enrollment Penalties, or b) you have health insurance with prescription coverage from the private market, in which case you are likely paying way too much.
