Medical Insurance

4 posts in this topic

Hi,

Again, I'm sorry, I tried to pick a forum, but I couldn't tell where to ask this. I search "insurance" but it didn't really help.

Are disabled vets who use VA medical centers... which is me...are any of those medical insurance programs that are available through VA, like ChampVA or Tricare (I don't know the names, not really)...are any of those available to me? The idea is so that I may be able to get certain care at a private/civilian type provider.

Is there anything at all? I am P&T, TDIU.

Thanks.

With IU & P&T status - you are covered for any and all medical care

to include RX drugs and dental care, at the VAMC's.

You should also be able to receive SSDI and once on SSDI, for 2yrs, purchase Medicare, part B, and a supplement, which I recommend, to all vets. It allows you care other than the VA's, for an option. jmo

Tri-care is for retiree's. ChampVA is for dependents.
