Nationwide Health Coverage & Income Assistance Programs

Medicare
Provides health care coverage for people with long-term disabilities (and most Americans age 65 and older).


Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI)
Provides income to people who are no longer able to work because of a disability; benefits are based on a person’s work history. People who receive SSDI are eligible for Medicare after 2 years.


State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP)
Provides health care coverage to uninsured children in families with incomes that are too high to qualify for Medicaid.


Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
Provides a monthly stipend to people with disabilities (and low-income Americans age 65 and older) to help meet basic needs for food, shelter and clothing. Individuals who receive SSI are often eligible for Medicaid.

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is an accredited charity of the Better Business Bureau.
