Medicare For Veterans

What if I am receiving VA benefits, do I still need Medicare

Medicare for Veterans:  The Veterans Administration does not recommend that veterans cancel or decline coverage in Medicare solely because they are enrolled in VA health care. 

 

Unlike Original Medicare, which offers the same benefits for all enrollees, VA assigns enrollees to priority levels based on a variety of eligibility factors, such as service connection and income.  There is no guarantee that in subsequent years Congress will appropriate sufficient medical care funds for VA to provide care for all enrollment priority groups. 

 

This could leave veterans, especially those enrolled in one of the lower-priority groups, with no access to VA health care coverage.  For this reason, having a secondary source of coverage may be in a veteran’s best interest. 

 

Call and speak with one of our licensed agents to learn about plans that work with VA benefits.
