People who become disabled from an illness or injury are generally elibible for SSD or SSI depending upon their individual circumstances. When a person qualifies for Social Security Disability benefits they can usually receive early Medicare and/or Medicaid. Visit the Social Security Administration website or call 1-800-772-1213 for information about qualification requirements and the application procedure. Please be advised there is a waiting period after the application has been submitted. For job related injury or illness the person should also contact the Workman's Compensation Insurance provider for his place of employment. Note that the waiting period for Medicare for disabled people is 2 YEARS...for for that period the disabled are on their own as far as medical care goes

Why would your medical bills be denied in a fatal motorcycle accident?

I don't know without more information, there are numerous reasons that they would/could deny them. The insurance company must in writing explain why they have denied any claim, or portion of the claim. If you would like to give me more details regarding the facts of loss I could be of more assistance to you and perhaps 'see' the reason from that information.......sorry, and good luck.........let me know if I can help. To answer the question we first need to find out which insurance is denying the bills, as well as which insurance should be paying the bills. When you working with accidents the liable party could be the motorcyle insurance, the insurance for the party at fault or a medical insurance.
