CHAMP VA ...health insurance for family

Postby The Godfather » Thu Mar 16, 2017 8:00 pm

The Civilian Health and Medical Program of the Department of Veterans Affairs (CHAMPVA) is a comprehensive health care program in which the VA shares the cost of covered health care services and supplies with eligible beneficiaries. The program is administered by the Veterans Health Administration Office of Community Care (VHA CC) in Denver, Colorado.
Due to the similarity between CHAMPVA and the Department of Defense (DoD) TRICARE program (sometimes referred to by its old name, CHAMPUS), the two are often mistaken for each other. CHAMPVA is a Department of Veterans Affairs program; TRICARE is a regionally managed health care program for active duty and retired members of the uniformed services, their families, and survivors. In some cases a Veteran may appear to be eligible for both/either program on paper. However, if you are a military retiree, or the spouse of a Veteran who was killed in action, you are and will always be a TRICARE beneficiary; you can´t choose between the two.

CHAMPVA eligibility

To be eligible for CHAMPVA, you cannot be eligible for TRICARE, and you must be in one of these categories:

The spouse or child of a Veteran who has been rated permanently and totally disabled for a service-connected disability by a VA regional office

The surviving spouse or child of a Veteran who died from a VA-rated service-connected disability.

The surviving spouse or child of a Veteran who was at the time death rated permanently and totally disabled from a service-connected disability

The surviving spouse or child of a military member who died in the line of duty, not due to misconduct (in most of these cases, these family members are eligible for TRICARE, not CHAMPVA).
