- Friend was DX
I have a family close friend who is likely going to get an ALS diagnosis and we are trying to find out if she will qualify for Medicare. She has been a stay at home mom so she has not worked but her husband has worked and they have paid social security through his work. All the websites make it sound like medicare is a given if you have an ALS diagnosis but it isn't clear if it will still be valid if only the spouse has worked. Does anyone have any insight into this? It seems like it should be an obvious question but I've been looking for hours without a clear answer. Thanks in advance!
