Should I keep my health insurance?
Published 10/01/2002 06:02 PM | Updated 05/04/2011 11:36 AMShould I drop my Health Insurance Coverage if I get health care from VA?
VA's ability to provide health care benefits is restricted each year to that amount of dollars appropriated by Congress for the provision of health care to veterans. That amount could, in any given year, require the VA to restrict the number of veterans enrolled for health care benefits. This means that in a given year the VA may not be in a position to enroll you, and you would have to depend on your own health insurance.
