Veterans, Want More Health Plan Options? Here’s What Medicare Advantage Can Give You

As a veteran of the U.S. Armed Forces, did you know you can combine your Veterans Affairs (VA) benefits with Medicare? By adding a Medicare Advantage plan to your health coverage, you can save money, access more providers, and enjoy additional benefits. If you’re curious about your options, our advisors are here to provide local help with Medicare questions.

Continue reading to learn how Medicare Advantage can be combined with your current coverage, as well as the extra benefits you can enjoy.

How Do I Combine VA Coverage and Medicare Advantage?

Enrolling in a Medicare Advantage plan does not interfere with your VA health benefits. Your current coverage will remain intact and unchanged.

When you go to VA facilities to receive care, you will use your VA benefits. But when you go to a doctor or hospital outside of the VA, you will use your Medicare Advantage plan.

What Can I Get From Medicare Advantage That I Can’t Get From the VA?

More Flexibility. Expand your network of treatment options. Your veteran coverage might limit you to certain doctors, hospitals, or health care facilities. You can access more options and shorter wait times for appointments when you enroll in Medicare Advantage.

More Choices. You can choose from dozens of Medicare Advantage plan options, making it easy to customize your benefits to your needs. Our advisors can help you narrow down your choices and pick the right plan.

More Benefits. Medicare Advantage offers all-in-one coverage that includes vision, hearing, and dental services, as well as prescription drug coverage.

Part B Reimbursement. Some Medicare Advantage plans offer money back in your pocket to help pay for your Medicare Part B monthly premium. You may be reimbursed for part or all of your premium through your insurance company.

What Is the Best Medicare Advantage Plan?

The best Medicare Advantage plan is the one that works for your unique needs—giving you the right benefits, working with your budget, and helping you stay healthy.

Most Medicare Advantage plans have $0 premiums, so your monthly costs won’t go up when you enroll. Further, Medicare Advantage plans come with an out-of-pocket maximum that will limit the amount you can spend on health care in a year.
