This dissertation examines relationships between cancer in working-age adults and enrollment in Medicare due disability.
We examine whether cancer diagnosis and treatments affect enrollment in Medicare due to disability, whether there is pent-up demand for cancer diagnosis during the 29-month waiting period between application and receipt of Medicare benefits, and whether disabled working-age adults receive quality cancer care when enrolled in Medicare.
