This week on Veterans Day we celebrate and salute the men and women who have served our country. Our veterans put their lives on the line for our country and ensuring they have access to medicines is critical.
The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) provides health benefits for veterans who complete active duty. While this coverage includes a drug benefit, many veterans also choose to supplement their VA benefits with other coverage for medicines rather than relying exclusively on VA coverage. Did you know that veterans can supplement their coverage with Medicare Part D?
We must ensure patients have access to the medicines they need. Protecting Part D is an important way to do that, including helping our veterans who rely on Part D for additional coverage.
