Could I Lose My Disability Benefits Because Of Trumpcare?

Earlier this month, The Huffington Post published an article that highlighted how much damage Trumpcare could inflict on Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. Instead of protecting these programs as he promised during his campaign, the American Health Care Act that President Trump is backing would gut Medicaid and raid Medicare. This move would hurt older Americans as well as people who are unable to work because of disability, including:

  • Cutting Medicare funding by $117.3 billion over the next 10 years
  • Potentially eliminating the long-term care protections that Medicaid provides to the elderly and people with disabilities
  • Slashing Medicaid funding by $880 billion over the next 10 years
  • Doing away with the protections that Medicaid provides people with disabilities and seniors, including placing a per enrollee cap on federal funding
  • Setting up even more cuts to Medicaid and Medicare funding in the future

If Trumpcare becomes law, these changes could just be the tip of the iceberg, which would be very bad news for older Americans and the disabled.

Can I Qualify for Medicare or Medicaid If I Am Receiving Disability Benefits?

In the video below, Tulsa disability lawyer Steve Troutman discusses how people can receive both Medicaid or Medicare and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI).


    I didn't think there was a caring professional considerate attorney firm on the planet, but Troutman & Troutman proved me wrong. From the receptionist to the legal assistance to the attorney and more they were exceptional people.

    They did a fantastic job getting everything gathered up and getting the trial done as quickly as possible. Anytime I had a question they were patient and help me understand what was going on. Especially Christy and Charlie were great.

    Steve Troutman was able to get my short-term and long-term disability for me. Then Erin another lawyer for their firm got my Social security disability for me. Great people.

    Mr. Troutman walked me through the entire process. Heather was available each time I called, answered all my crazy questions, and helped me fill out forms along the way. I was never treated like I was wasting time.

    Erin and Keith were fabulous! They were compassionate, helpful, and very responsive! They made the process very smooth and painless every step of the way.
