RE:”Janice Phelps, a 60-year-old disabled factory worker in Evansville, Indiana, knows how expensive healthcare is. Each month, shots for her severe asthma cost $3,000. Quarterly injections for knee pain cost $3,200.
Medication for depression costs $900. She has had seven back surgeries, two shoulder surgeries, and two knee surgeries since 1985. The largest public health programs in America Medicaid and Medicare, which aid the poor and the elderly paid for nearly all of it. “
Asthma, knee surgeries and depression?
How does she get medicare at 60?

(All hell broke loose!)
You are automatically enrolled into Medicare after being on disability for two years if you are under the age of 62.
Social Security Disability gets you Medicare and being poor gets you Medicaid.
Medi/Medi is the best insurance there is.
