Mike’s Story

Mike has had Veterans Administration coverage for the past 10 years and will soon be turning 65 and eligible for Medicare. He wants to make sure he thoroughly understands his healthcare options and their associated costs, because he’s been in the hospital before and routinely sees physicians to keep an eye on his health and get preventive care. He receives benefits from a pension, but his income is limited.

Mike’s Next Steps
