Advantage For Veterans
Having a Medicare plan alongside your TRICARE or VA health coverage can actually increase your coverage benefits, as well as the amount of places you can receive health services and coverage.
Combination of Plans
You are allowed to combine your veteran healthcare coverage with a Medicare plan. However, to enroll in a Medicare Advantage Plan, you must first be enrolled in Original Medicare (Part A and B). Part A is inpatient hospital coverage. Part B is outpatient medical coverage.
Medicare Advantage is just another way to receive Original Medicare benefits, as well as extra coverage. Some of the extra benefits that Medicare Advantage provides are:
- Dental, vision, and hearing coverage
- Prescription drug coverage
- Transportation to doctor visits
- Adult daycare services
- Fitness memberships
- Nutrition programs
- Wellness programs
