In brief: Forms forms
In california, at least, patients and physicians fill out state disability forms to get benefits from the state (and private insurance, if the patient has a disability policy).
After the patient is on state disability, they can then apply for federal disability (ssi), which takes longer to initiate, but lasts permanently. Once on federal disability, patients can usually get medicare.
