If I get Social Security disability benefits will I also get Medicare?

Yes. However there is a waiting period.

After a person is eligible for Social Security Disability benefits and has received 24 monthly payments (2 years), that person is eligible for Medicare Health Insurance benefits. Social Security will deduct the Medicare premium from each monthly check.
