For those receiving medical care through TRICARE or the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), Obama wants you to know: Your benefits are safe.
Eligibility for health care under VA or TRICARE "will not be affected by our efforts at broader health-care reform" Obama told military reporters at the White House on August 4.
"I want to make sure that message gets out to our veterans," the president said. "I think it's very important to get the message out: If you are in the VA system and are happy with your care, great. We have no intention of changing your eligibility."
To learn if you are a eligible for veteran's benefits or TRICARE: please visit the VA website: Health Care Eligibility and Enrollment for Veterans.
