  • Disability and temporary health insurance - CA California

    I am concerned about finding temporary health insurance while on disability. Will I be charged more/unable to get it at all if I am on disability of any sort with most health insurance companies?

    Also, is medicare available while you are on disability and how long does it take to get ti?

    No, Medicare is not available for short term situations. Medicaid might be.

    Yes, if you are on disability for any reason, it will make it more difficult to find health insurance.
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.
