3 Ways to Gauge Medicare Benefits for Veterans

Posted by TSS Medicare Helper on Mar 21, 2017 4:20:58 PM

If you are a Veteran receiving VA benefits you can also be enrolled in Medicare once you become eligible, in fact it is encouraged. The VA provides many services for those who have served our country and their dependents such as financial assistance, education, home loans and healthcare. However there can be limitations to the services you receive from the VA and so relying on VA benefits alone for your health care once you reach age 65 can severely limit your options.

What if You Don’t Get Medicare Part A for Free?

Posted by admin on Sep 21, 2015 10:09:09 AM

The vast majority of retirees in the U.S. qualify for Medicare because either they or a spouse have enough work credits. This means that these qualified individuals pay no premium for Part A and a modest premium for Part B. However, some people don’t qualify, and this is usually because they immigrated to the United States as elderly people and lack work credits. The question arises if there are any alternatives for these people to get health benefits.

How Are Medicare Beneficiaries Covered?

Posted by admin on Jul 28, 2015 9:59:28 AM

According to a Kaiser Family Foundation page, “Medigap Reform: setting the Context for Understanding Recent Proposals,” the vast majority of Medicare beneficiaries enhance their Medicare benefits with some other kind of coverage. Even though Part A and Part B offer very broad coverage, it is no secret that there are gaps because of deductibles, copays, coinsurance, and things that Medicare does not pay for at all. People who are interested in buying Medicare insurance from private companies to enhance their own benefits might be interested in learning what other beneficiaries do to make the most of their health benefits.
