Your VA Medical Benefits and The Affordable Care Act!
We here at Veteran Owned Business understand the incredible confusion related to the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). More specifically, we know veterans and family members are both confused and concerned about how it will affect your future VA medical benefits. To help you better understand how your VA Medical Benefits and The Affordable Care Act will work together, we’ve put together this healthcare educational series:
What is the Affordable Care Act?
The Affordable Care Act, also known as the health care law, was created to expand access to coverage, control health care costs and improve health care quality and care coordination. The health care law does not change VA health benefits or Veterans’ out-of-pocket costs.
Three things you should know:
- 1 VA wants all Veterans to receive health care that improves their health and well-being.
- 2 If you are enrolled in VA health care, you don’t need to take additional steps to meet the health care law coverage standards. The health care law does not change VA health benefits or Veterans’ out-of-pocket costs.
- 3 If you are not enrolled in VA health care, you can apply at any time.
The good news is that Veterans enrolled in VA health care programs have health coverage that meets the new health care law’s standard. You do not have to take any additional steps to have health coverage. Click here to read more…
