If you are a veteran considering your Medicare options, it’s important for you to know there are Medicare Advantage plans that complement the coverage you may already have through the Veterans Affairs (VA).


Fortunately, finding a Medicare Advantage plan that offers benefits not covered through VA health care is easier than you think. For example, the Humana Honor Medicare Advantage Plans may complement the benefits a veteran receives through VA healthcare while providing beneficiaries with affordable health benefits, wellness programs and a holistic focus on health and well-being.


On Thursday, October 29th, Ed Sandrick of Humana and Orlando Gallardo, a Humana Honor member, will be available to help educate Medicare eligible veterans about how to select the right Medicare Advantage plan before the December 7 deadline. Ed and Orlando can also provide helpful insights about Humana Medicare Advantage plans, which are recommended by USAA, and share details about the Humana Honor Plans that are available to all Medicare eligible individuals in 46 states.
