Let us talk about your budget and goals.
Have you considered the VA Health Care system to help you meet your unique health care needs? It is a comprehensive health care resource, and benefits within the system can assist you financially.
As a military veteran, consider these five VA Health Care (VHC) money management tips to make the most of your money:
1. No monthly premium is required to participate in VHC. A short application is necessary. It will operate as useful complement to your Medicare and existing private insurance.
2. High quality hearing aids are accessible at a low cost. In certain instances, no cost.
3. Insulin and diabetic supplies are available for a low co-pay.
4. VA has an extensive medication plan. No monthly premium is required. High tier drugs are generally available with a lower co-pay than private insurance.
5. Long term in-home help is offered for health compromised veterans. VHC pays the cost for nurses’ aides and homemakers to come to your home.
Additionally, VA Health Care provides incontinence supplies, durable medical equipment, personal emergency fall buttons, caregiver programs, nursing home care, and much more.
