With Veteran's Day around the corner, we wanted to point out the range of benefits available to those who served our country in uniform. It doesn't matter how long the veteran has been out of the military. All who were honorably discharged can apply. Spouses are eligible too, even if they are divorced or the veteran has died.

The Veterans Administration (VA) medical benefits package can include

  • doctor visits, hospitalization and surgery
  • prescriptions, lab tests, and x-rays
  • dental and vision care
  • home health care and hospice
  • nursing home care
