Advantage for Veterans
If you are a veteran and currently have coverage through TRICARE or VA, you may feel as if Medicare coverage isn’t necessary. However, joining a Medicare Advantage plan can be more beneficial than you thought, and here’s why.
You Can Combine Coverage
By keeping your coverage through TRICARE or VA and enrolling in Medicare, you are giving yourself the opportunity to have more coverage. For example, veterans with VA coverage are limited to receiving their care from VA facilities only. However, with Medicare, you can choose to receive your care outside of a VA facility and still receive coverage.
To join a Medicare Advantage plan, you’ll first need to enroll in Original Medicare (Part A and B), but this is typically encouraged by the VA anyway since VA coverage isn’t always guaranteed to last.

You’ll Have Access to More Benefits
Joining a Medicare Advantage plan also means you will have access to more benefits. Medicare Advantage plans are required to provide the same coverage as Original Medicare, which includes coverage for inpatient and outpatient services. However, these plans may also have additional benefits that can include:
- Prescription drug coverage
- Dental coverage
- Vision coverage
- Hearing coverage
- Gym memberships
- Wellness programs
- Nutrition programs
- Doctor visit transportation
- Adult daycare services
