  • Hi KK,

    As a veteran it looks like you can choose whether Medicare or the VA covers a particular healthcare need, however it's not clear whether if you chose Medicare that your VA benefits could cover anything past what's covered by Medicare A&B.

    You should probably talk with both Medicare and the VA to get a more detailed answer.

    Thanks for your service to our country.

    Good luck.
