There are multiple Medicare options for VFW members. The VFW Insurance Program offers Medicare Advantage, Medicare Supplemental and Medicare Part D through Humana. Humana is one of the nation’s largest health care companies, offering a broad national footprint.
With multiple Medicare options for VFW members, it can be hard to keep them all straight. Read on for descriptions of each product offering:
Medicare Advantage Plans are offered through private companies and cover all Medicare services. Most Medicare Advantage Plans also offer extra coverage, like vision, hearing and dental coverage.
A Medicare Supplement Insurance (Medigap) policy helps pay some of the health care costs that Medicare doesn’t cover on its own. The policy may cover expenses such as copayments, coinsurance, deductibles and more.
Medicare Part D
Medicare Part D is a prescription drug benefit that helps to make the costs of prescription drugs and prescription drug insurance premiums more affordable for Medicare beneficiaries.
