Health care for military veterans

Dear Editor:

When portions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) take effect next year, veterans receiving health care from the Department of Veterans Affairs will see no change in their benefits or out-of-pocket costs.

However, there are more than 1.3 million veterans and more than 950,000 spouses and children of veterans without health insurance. Many uninsured veterans are eligible for VA health care.

The VA is working hard to ensure that enrolled veterans know that they don’t have to do anything to comply with ACA and eligible veterans who are not enrolled should take advantage of the VA health care benefits they have earned.

For those who are not eligible for VA care – such as veterans’ family members – the law created a new Health Insurance Marketplace. In 2014, the Marketplace will be a new way to shop for and purchase private health insurance. People who purchase insurance through the Marketplace may be able to lower the costs of health insurance coverage by paying lower monthly premiums.

If you served in the active military, naval or air service and are separated under any condition other than dishonorable, you may qualify for VA health care benefits.

For more information, call 765-932-3075.

Steve Land

Rush County Veterans’ Service Officer
