If you are qualified for Medicare, the fact that you have a work related injury will not prevent you from acquiring Medicare coverage. Worker's Compensation will only pay for expenses in treating your injury that you acquired at work. Everything else will have to be covered elsewhere.

This refers to insurance plans, called "Advantage Private-Fee-for-Service" plans, that one buys to accompany their Medicare since Medicare does not cover all costs (neither do these insurance plans). Many of these Advantage PFFS plans have a zero premium, hence they are called "no cost". They can offer a zero premium because this type of plan receives compensation from Medicare directly to provide coverage; in essence, Medicare is paying the monthly premium rather than the participant.
