Jim,
My husband is a 100% disabled veteran who is turning 65 in March Does he need Medicare Part B?
And if we do sign up for it, if he had an emergency and had to go to a non VA hospital, does he have to use Medicare?
There is a deductible of right around $1100 using Medicare where as through the VA we didn't pay anything even for a non service connected emergency Any help would be greatly appreciated
