VFW Launches New Personalized Health-Savings Program
VFW chooses Veterans Care Plus, a Personalized Health Savings Program that includes access to lower cost prescription drugs and other health services, for its members and its auxiliary.
For over 100 years the success of the Veterans of Foreign Wars has been built on programs that improve the lives of Veterans, their families, and the communities they live and work in. After years of exploration and preparation, the VFW and its Ladies Auxiliary are now providing its 2.4 million members’ access to a Personalized Health Savings Program through Veterans Care Plus.
Veterans Care Plus is the first program of its kind developed for veterans by veterans, and is available to VFW and Ladies Auxiliary members nationwide. The VFW Personalized Health Savings Program offers a unique combination of wellness and discount savings programs for VFW and Ladies Auxiliary members. Enrollees can save up to 60% on prescription medications through two sources. One, through a Mail Order service from the comfort and safety of ones own home and two, members can also receive discount pricing on prescriptions medicines at over 56,000 retail drug stores throughout the United States.
To achieve even greater savings and health benefits, the program includes Dedicated Pharmacy Advocates (a team of clinical pharmacists) who will review medication and health profiles of members and then work directly with the members and their doctors to make therapeutic improvements and minimize out-of-pocket costs. The program also provides several wellness and disease management options for individuals touched by cancer, Alzheimer’s, heart and circulatory diseases, and diabetes.
The Veterans Care Plus program is not an insurance program and will not affect any member’s current coverage. Even for those that have health coverage through the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), Medicare Part D, TriCare, or private third party insurance, the Pharmacy Advocate and wellness and disease management components of Veterans Care Plus can generate health benefits and incremental out-of-pocket savings for all enrollees. Any Veteran or spouse of a Veteran can access Veterans Care Plus by calling 1-866-4VETSRX (1-866-483-8779) or visiting www.veteranscareplus.com. Members of the VFW and its Ladies Auxiliary can join at a reduced rate.
Proceeds of Veterans Care Plus support the VFW and its Ladies Auxiliary programs and services in addition to The Twilight Brigade, a national, not-for-profit group that is organized to provide social and care giver support to veterans and immediate family members.
