As soon as you turn 65, you become eligible for Medicare. But since you are disabled I think you should get a disability lawyer to get the money you need.

Who is eligible for medicare coverage?

Anyone age 65 or over is eligible for Medicare. Most people age 65 and over are covered under Medicare Part A for free, based on their work records or on their spouse's work records. People over 65 who are not eligible for free Medicare Part A coverage can enroll in it and pay a monthly fee for the same coverage. However, this rate increases by 10% for each year after your 65th birthday that you wait to enroll. The rules of eligibility for Part B medical insurance are simpler than for Part A: If you are age 65 or over and are either a U.S. citizen or a permanent resident who has been here lawfully for five consecutive years, you are eligible to enroll in Medicare Part B medical insurance. This is true whether or not you are eligible for Part A hospital insurance.
