If she is on SSDI, she should be able to get Medicaid. I think there is a dovetailing between SSDI & Medicaid within the application. Since she was covered under your policy, it was not needed to be done.

For Medicare you apply at 65. There are some specific disabilities - eg permanent kidney failure - that enable for Medicare coverage before 65 though. You need to contact CMS to see what is needed to get a waiver for under 65. Good luck and post what you find out.
