Does VA bill Medicare if I am hospitalized?
By law, VA cannot bill Medicare. The VA is obligated to bill private health insurance carriers for services provided to treat non-service connected conditions which includes health insurance companies that provide Medicare Supplemental insurance policies such as Blue Cross/Blue Shield, AARP, Cigna, etc.
