The news is full of  stories surrounding our Veterans, although more and more they seem to be stories with great sadness instead of ones that bring pure enjoyment. Life after the military can be challenging for our Veterans as well as their family members. From mental health issues, to pain and illness, our veterans suffer a multitude of issues. They ultimately pay a high price for the freedoms we often take for granted. There is so much that our Veterans need and deserve from us, and there are ways that we can contribute, even in the smallest of ways, that can make a huge difference in the lives of the men and women who serve our country. Many opportunities to help veterans you can organize from your own home town.

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.

VA (Veterans Affair) Priority Groups

Posted by TSS Medicare Helper on May 9, 2016 5:00:00 AM

To our Veterans, we want to first offer you a sincere Thank You for your service!  

The Veterans Health Administration is America’s largest integrated healthcare system serving 8.76 million Veterans each year. The amount of Veterans who can be enrolled in the health care program is determined by the amount of money congress gives the VA evry year.  Since funds are limited the VA has created priority groups to make sure that certain groups of veterans are able to be enrolled before others.  The VA operates an annual enrollment that helps to manage the provision of healthcare.  There are a variety of factors that the VA considers when handling the verification process and determining eligibility for enrollment.

You can learn more about the NRD project on the Office of Warrior Care Policy website or by going directly to NRD.gov.

Do Veterans' benefits pay for Long Term Care?

Posted by admin on Jan 7, 2015 10:28:56 AM

Before discussing how veterans benefits might help pay for long term care, it might be helpful to define what long term care usually means. This is a very broad term that typically covers everything from help with normal activities (Activities of Daily Living, or ADLs) to help managing illnesses and infirmities. This care could be provided by home caregivers, adult day care workers, or in a residential setting like an assisted living home or skilled nursing facility.

Do Veterans with Veterans Health Benefits need Medicare Part B?

Posted by admin on Nov 12, 2014 3:42:02 PM

Many veterans, and some active-duty service people wonder if they need to enroll in Medicare Part B as soon as they qualify. Most people over 65 qualify for premium-free Medicare Part A, but they are required to pay a premium for Part B. This year, this premium is $104.90 for most eligible people, but that figure could change at any time. Do people who already have the ability to access health care benefits through the VA need to spend extra money for Part B?

How do Medicare Advantage and VA benefits work together?

Posted by admin on Aug 2, 2014 9:00:47 PM

After serving our country in a branch of the US military, many veterans are entitled to health benefits through the VA. However, VA doctors and hospitals are not always convenient options. The vast majority of retired veterans also qualify for Medicare Part A and Part B, and many also choose to maximize those benefits with a Medicare Advantage plan or the addition of a Medicare supplement.
