TRICARE/CHAMPVA Supplemental Insurance
TRICARE & CHAMPVA overview.
VFW members and their family members who have TRICARE or CHAMPVA are also eligible to enroll in a TRICARE or CHAMPVA Supplemental insurance plan. CHAMPVA is available to the spouse or window(er) and to the children of a veteran who meet certain criteria.
TRICARE is available to active duty service members and retirees and their family members/survivors. It pays a substantial amount for medical care, but you may still need a supplemental insurance plan to help fill in the gaps. Through the VFW you have the option to purchase a VFW-sponsored TRICARE Supplement Insurance policy from Monumental Life Insurance Company.
CHAMPVA is a program sponsored the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) that helps pay for the cost of medical care. In order to be eligible for CHAMPVA, the individual cannot be eligible for TRICARE and will provide coverage to the spouse or widow(er) and to the children of a veteran who became permanently and totally disabled during service-connected work or died as a result of such disability or while in active duty status. While CHAMPVA helps pay for a portion of medical care, a supplemental insurance can help fill in the cost gaps.
Enrollment in this TRICARE or CHAMPVA Supplement plan is easy:
— Simple enrollment process via mail or phone (no medical exam)
— Affordable group rates with flexible billing options (direct bill, electronic funds transfer or credit card)
— Eligibility that extends to your spouse and children (if applicable)
