As I veteran, I care deeply about veterans issues. So when I heard about this important fact related to veterans and ObamaCare, I felt the immediate need to pass the information along.
The most important fact that you will learn from the following:
If you are enrolled in VA health care, you don’t need to take additional steps to meet the health care law coverage standards. The health care law does not change VA health benefits or Veterans’ out-of-pocket costs.
From the Veterans Administration website under the title, “VA, Affordable Care Act and You“:
What is the Affordable Care Act?
The Affordable Care Act, also known as the health care law, was created to expand access to coverage, control health care costs and improve health care quality and care coordination. The health care law does not change VA health benefits or Veterans’ out-of-pocket costs.
Three things you should know:
- VA wants all Veterans to receive health care that improves their health and well-being.
- If you are enrolled in VA health care, you don’t need to take additional steps to meet the health care law coverage standards. The health care law does not change VA health benefits or Veterans’ out-of-pocket costs.
- If you are not enrolled in VA health care, you can apply at any time.
The good news is that Veterans enrolled in VA health care programs have health coverage that meets the new health care law’s standard. You do not have to take any additional steps to have health coverage. Read more if enrolled…

ObamaCare is a complete, unmitigated disaster that was passed by truly evil people who cared only about expanding the raw fascist power of government, rather than actually “caring” about anybody. If you can avoid the ensuing hell that this disastrous and very Unaffordable takeover of the health care system will surely result in, you ought to do everything you can to do so.
It is a good thing to know that veterans have already suffered enough, and therefore don’t need to go to war all over again just to comply with the mandates of their power-hungry government.
