Can I Qualify for Medicare?
So, you are eligible for Medicare coverage at age 65 if you are a U.S. citizen or a permanent resident and you have lived here (continuously) for at least five years.
If you are under age 65, you can also qualify if you meet the following standards:
- You have end-stage renal disease
- You have Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (Lou Gehrig’s Disease)
- You are permanently disabled and you have been receiving Social Security disability income benefits for two years
