Just a Canadian here, but I know contract law and governments (somewhat).
Reaching "65", and, "being on disability" are clearly major factors affecting your healthcare coverages. Just prior to or on reaching those categories, while it would have been nice to have received layman's language literature about the implications, I suspect you're "on your own" for figuring it out and doing what's appropriate (eg. I gather you are not automatically enrolled in Medicare but need to 'sign up' for it, at 65 and/or "being on disability"). With us, we're advised to enroll for our age 65 benefits (government pension(s)) almost a year ahead of time (to allow for 'processing').
Nobody hardly does this in practice (beforehand anyway) but group/work insurance doubtless has many pages of fine print you ought to read (since it's your money supporting such plans) which go into the whereases and wherefors of the process in some convoluted fashion I'll bet.
