Veteran Benefits (VA)
  • It will almost always be to your advantage to keep your current coverage without any changes. However, if you have limited income and resources, you may qualify for extra help from Medicare.
  • Before making any changes to your coverage, contact your benefits administrator for more information about your VA coverage.
  • Call the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs at 1-800-827-1000 for information on Veteran's benefits and services in your area.
  • If you lose your VA coverage and join a Medicare drug plan, in most cases, you won’t have to pay a penalty, as long as you join within 63 days of losing your coverage.
