DANVILLE, Pa. -- Veterans eligible for Medicare should be sure to review their Medicare Advantage plans and take advantage of the Annual Enrollment Period for Medicare that ends Dec. 7.

Veterans can receive both Veteran Affairs (VA) health care benefits and Medicare when they become eligible. Medicare Advantage plans provide more coverage options when veterans are seeking care closer to home from non-VA health care facilities. That includes access to programs like Geisinger 65 Forward health centers, which offer senior-focused primary care.

Additional health coverage can provide more services and opportunities to live a healthier life. Plans like Geisinger Gold Heritage (HMO), which is specifically for veterans, offer additional coverage without adding a monthly payment.

Beyond the plan’s built-in benefits, veterans with the Heritage HMO plan can enjoy 65 Forward membership. Perks include:

  • Longer 1:1 time with the doctor 
  • Strength and balance training
  • Individualized exercise programs to meet goals
  • Group classes
  • Health education and fall prevention
