How Does the Affordable Care Act (ACA)/Obamacare Affect Your Military/Veteran Healthcare?
The ACA will not affect the quality or cost of care provided for VA healthcare patients or people covered under TRICARE. Eligibility for TRICARE for Life has opened up and there has been some non-ACA related changes in coverage of adult children.
Every state runs a Medicaid program although it may be called something else. For example, California has Medi-Cal; Maine has MaineCare. This program provides health insurance for those who can least afford it. The coverage is very comprehensive - including doctors visits, hospital care, dental care, prescriptions and mental health care.
