People who have served in the United States Armed Forces deserve the best from their health plan.
Veterans' service is a meaningful part of their life story, a piece of their healthcare puzzle, and a keystone to a wide variety of benefits available through the Department of Veterans Affairs and other sources. As the industry's leader in serving Veterans, BeneLynk goes further in retrieving documentation of VA care directly from the VA for those in your population who have served in the military. Then, we link members with a wide array of Veteran-specific benefit programs.
Veterans in Medicare Advantage
For those members who receive some of their healthcare through the Department of Veterans Affairs (5% of Medicare Advantage members), BeneLynk retrieves documentation of the care those members receive directly from the VA.
22% of Medicare Advantage members are Veterans of the United States Armed Forces.
5% of Medicare Advantage members use the VA for their medical care.
Care provided by the VA to Medicare Advantage members is not systematically communicated to Medicare Advantage plans. We address this by:
Identifying Veterans from the broader population
Securing member authorization to communicate with the VA
Retrieving charts from VA facilities across the country
Providing comprehensive charts to our Medicare Advantage customers
