Medicare Advantage for Veterans

If you are a veteran with insurance coverage from the VA, you may not think you need Medicare coverage, but you may want to reconsider. The VA recommends that veterans sign up for Medicare, along with their VA benefits. If you are unsure if you should sign up for Medicare, let the experts at Senior Insurance Representatives help you determine it. 

Medicare Advantage Plans for Veterans

Medicare Advantage Plans are a combination of Medicare Part A and Part B. You can’t get an MA plan until you have both Medicare Parts A and B. Once you choose an MA plan, you’ll find that you have extra benefits, which may include:

  • One plan for both hospital and doctor coverage
  • One plan to manage your out-of-pocket maximums
  • Extra coverage, such as dental, vision, prescription, and hearing coverage
  • Your VA coverage isn’t a ‘sure thing’ and can end at any time
  • Medicare coverage gives you more doctor and hospital options

How to Choose the Right Medicare Advantage Plan

Here’s where many veterans get confused. How do you know which Medicare Advantage plan is right for you? There are many options, including both PPO and HMO plans. Your current health status, the doctors you see, and your budget all determine which plan is right for you.

At Senior Insurance Representatives, we recommend that you sign up for Medicare Part A and B as soon as you are eligible. This occurs three months before your 65th birthday and goes through three months after your birthday. 

If you don’t enroll in that time, you must wait until the Open Enrollment Period, which is October 15 – December 7. Once you are enrolled in an MA plan, you can swap plans or switch back to Original Medicare on January 1 – March 31. If you have missed your enrollment period for Parts A and B, you can also enroll during the General Enrollment Period.
