If you aren't as familiar with Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), Supplemental Security Income (SSI disability benefit) and Medicare as you want to be, I would recommend you check out the Social Security benefits listed in the Redbook link.
Knowledge = Opportunity!

Important Information About
Sometimes Medicaid, which is a SSI benefit, gets mixed up with Medicare.
The federal government and Social Security administers Medicare and you will have a red, white, and blue card. You always have the same one and the rules are the same in every state.
Medicaid is a SSI benefit. (or for the first two year waiting period for Medicare for SSDI recipients)
Medicaid and SSI are operated by the state and the rules are different in each state. The maximum SSI benefit from the federal government is $721/month "For Most States", but some states do supplement this SSI benefit amount. Medicaid is for those disabled who have little income and resources. You can have both SSI and SSDI, in that case Medicaid would pay your Medicare premium for you.
