Did you serve your country honorably in the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines or other military organization? If so, then you deserve “thanks” for what you did.
Yet, like many returning veterans in North Carolina, you might be unaware of what benefits and rights you have. It is common for people to assume that veterans are "taken care of" in every capacity, such as health care. Presumably, all one has to do is walk into a VA Hospital, right?
This kind of thinking can leave you unable to afford medical care when needed. A wiser choice is to speak with an independent agent at Don Allred Insurance, which serves the greater Burlington, NC area. We think you might find it is wise to purchase a private health insurance plan.
You should consider taking out a personal health insurance plan, even if you have access to a VA Hospital. Remember, getting in to see a government-supported physician can be difficult. The schedules are often backed-up, quite often for months.
Furthermore, free VA care is only possible for those who fit certain criteria. Income, a service-related injury, and other factors are considered.
Last, but certainly not least, you have to reapply on a regular basis. At any time you can be removed from the system for failure to complete mandatory paperwork. Then, the recertification process starts all over again.
Private Health Insurance as a Solution
Rather than rely on the government, many former service personnel in North Carolina purchase comprehensive private health care insurance. These policies can be better tailored to suit your personal needs.
