When you are on disability you are automatically eligible for Medicaid. In some states this happens at the time you qualify for disability payments, and in other there is a separate application process. Please help your son look into this as soon as possible, and good luck!

SSI usually comes with Medicaid if he qualifies. Sorry he is going through this! We are much better in this country of taking care of you if you are under 18 or over 65, unfortunately. He probably is entitled to COBRA benefits for a defined length of time, (pay a relatively small premium to continue private insurance) so read the fine print on his benefits documentation; you will have to talk to a benefits administrator but make sure they are on the up and up.
