In honor of Veterans Day, Signify Health salutes veterans of our armed forces and the commitment and sacrifices they’ve made to protect our nation. Signify Health is proud to provide health risk evaluations and Veteran Affairs (VA) Compensation and Pension exams to veterans nationwide. According to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, there are more than 9 million veterans age 65 and older living in the United States. Out of all of the health assessments completed so far this year by the providers in Signify Health’s network, more than 6 percent were visits with veterans.
Last year, VA research said the trend toward dual enrollment of veterans in Medicare Advantage plans continued to grow. In-home health assessments provide MA plan members a visit with a physician in the comfort of their home for up to one hour to complete a basic physical examination, review current and past medications and receive a list of follow up recommendations to take to their next primary care physician appointment.
Signify Health considers it a privilege to partner with health plans and the VA to provide America’s heroes valuable health assessment services in locations that are convenient for them.
