National Health Insurance
Updated: Jan 20, 2019
America’s National Health Insurance Program
Veterans enrolled in VA healthcare programs have health coverage that meets the health care law’s standard and do not have to take any additional steps for health coverage under the law. This means they are not subject to the mandatory penalty for not having healthcare.
Under certain circumstances, family members of Veterans are eligible for health benefits.
Some of the programs offered include the Civilian Health and Medical Program of the Department of Veterans Affairs (CHAMPVA), Spina Bifida (SB), Children of Women Vietnam Veterans (CWVV), Foreign Medical Program (FMP), Camp Lejeune Family Member Program (CLFMP) and Caregiver.
Using these programs may reduce or eliminate your cost for medical supplies, office visits or prescriptions. | Learn More
Most military families must seek coverage elsewhere. This brings us a question. The Affordable Health Care Act or Obamacare is changing. At this point…the question is, “To What?”
When Congress makes final changes…we will as well.
