Unitedhealthcare Patriot plan is zero premium Medicare Part C plan designed for veterans with Medicare Part A and B. The Patriot plan includes benefits that Medicare does not cover like gym membership, vision, dental and include a Medicare Part B premium credit each month. The Part B credit varies from state to state, but the most common is $50 a month. This means your social security check INCREASES each month by the amount of the credit.
The Patriot plan does NOT include drug coverage, so it works well with Tricare for Life members because TFL includes fantastic drug coverage with Express Scripts. Copays with the Patriot plan still get billed to Tricare for Life. The additional benefits for each states are listed below.
