Veterans’ Health Care Benefits – This is a huge deal

Part of living in the U.S. is needing health care. It’s a source of stress for many people, and some of us live on the edge without it. But if anyone should receive aid for their health care costs, it should be veterans. Many former service members suffer from physical injuries or less visible conditions such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). The Veterans Health Administration provides care for 9 million enrolled veterans at more than 1,200 facilities each year. On Bold TV, our hosts David Grasso and Julia Sun discuss health care benefits for those who have served our country.

Specific types of health care

If you were part of the military and are enrolled in one of several VA healthcare programs, your doctor and hospital visits may be fully covered. And the doctors aren’t always general practitioners. This type of health care provides specialists, whether the patient needs cardiology, dentistry or mental health counseling. The VA also has programs with doctors specifically trained to handle PTSD, a common challenge for veterans. While homelessness is also a major problem, your living situation doesn’t mean you can’t receive health care. There are national call centers so veterans can find these services even if they don’t have a home.

The sad truth of suicide among veterans

September is National Suicide Prevention Month, and it’s an important time to talk about suicide among veterans. In 2017, veteran suicides were at 16 per day. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs continues to work with different areas, including faith communities, employers, schools and health care organizations, to prevent suicide among all veterans. If you or someone close to you are a veteran, make sure you take advantage of the available opportunities. You have options.

Not sure what to do after your service? These former military officers are in grad school.
