If you have VA benefits due to your military service, you may be wondering if it’s worth signing up for Medicare when you already have access to care at VA facilities. For many veterans, enrolling in Medicare offers an extra level of protection against high out-of-pocket medical costs. Medicare coverage can also give you more flexibility when it comes to choosing the doctors and hospitals that provide your care.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, at 16.5 percent of the American population, seniors are one of the fastest-growing demographics in the country and are projected to increase in the years to come. As I am sure you are aware, it is inevitable that seniors will face many health issues and will struggle with many of the everyday tasks that impact their quality of life. Nursing homes are a popular and affordable option that can help seniors with long-term care and housing needs, many of which can be found in your community. Unfortunately, choosing the best facility to meet individual needs can be inundating and time-consuming for aging adults and families. For this reason, we came up with a resource to help seniors and their loved ones explore the different facilities available to them, costs, and payment options. You can learn more from our guide here
