Thanks, Pam, I miss read the original posting.

selimo2, no your Mom would not get Medicare unless she had worked in the U.S. and had put payroll taxes into the system. Now, it is my understanding that she could possibly get Medicaid. Check that out with your State Medicaid office.

Your Mom would only be able to get Medicare and Social Security only if she had put enough into the system while she was living in California.

Probably not. If she was not eligible for social security payments, chances are she won't get Medicare either. Go to ssa.gov and check online using her social security number and birth date.
