Veteran Coverage

Veteran Coverage

TRICARE or CHAMPVA Coverage - 

  • Your decision to enroll in Part A and B depends on whether you are eligible for premium-free Part A.

  • I am eligible for premium free Part A - You are required to enroll in Part A and Part B to keep your TRICARE or CHAMPVA coverage.

  • I am NOT eligible for premium-free Part A: Enrolling in Part A and Part B is optional. But, if you do not enroll during your Initial Enrollment Period, you will have to wait to sign up and you may have to pay a lifetime late enrollment penalty—and that penalty increases the longer you wait.

Veterans Affairs Coverage

  • If you only have Veterans Affairs (VA) coverage, you should enroll in Part A and Part B when you turn 65.
