In light of COVID-19, the great medical benefits I’ve earned as a veteran have become all the more valuable. But they do come with some downsides, including lack of access and options. Thankfully, Medicare Advantage has given me added coverage and the health care options I need.
My time serving in Vietnam has brought a few chronic health issues over time, including a heart condition and diabetes. Medicare Advantage coverage allows me to visit affordable, convenient health care services that are closer than the VA as well as accessing telehealth services during this pandemic.
Medicare Advantage gives me great peace of mind, especially during the ongoing pandemic crisis. I feel safe knowing that if I contract COVID-19 I can be tested and treated at no cost to me. That’s why I implore and thank leaders like Congressman Harder for supporting – and continuing to support – Medicare Advantage plans.
