AARP's Medicare Question and Answer Tool

How does Medicare work with coverage for veterans?

 

En español | Because each veteran’s situation is unique, you should carefully review your options. Remember, the VA medical benefits program is separate from Medicare. Veterans may be enrolled in both programs but the enrollment process (and the eligibility criteria) is different for each program. Before making any changes to your coverage, contact your benefits administrator for more information about your VA coverage.

Call the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs at
800-827-1000 for information on veterans benefits and services in your area.

You can find details on how Medicare works with other coverage at www.medicare.gov. Or you can call Medicare directly, at 800-633-4227.
