The individuals who will benefit most from reading this guide are individuals with disabilities, and their families, friends, and advocates. Medicare and Medicaid are extremely complicated and confusing programs-and the details of how the programs work directly affect the lives of the people with disabilities who the programs serve. Nonetheless, this guide is intended to be understandable to people who are completely unfamiliar with Medicare and/or Medicaid. This guide does not provide you with a complete understanding of every aspect and complexity of the Medicare and Medicaid programs. Both writing and reading such a long-and boring-encyclopedia would prove an arduous, if not impossible, task. Rather, our hope is to offer you a sound introduction to the basics of Medicare and Medicaid and the income assistance programs that provide a pathway to receiving Medicare and Medicaid.
