Can I continue to use veteran’s (VA) health care with other programs, like private insurance or federal and state health care programs?

Yes. You can continue to use VA for all your health care needs, or complement your VA care with private health insurance or coverage by other federal and state health care programs you may qualify for, including Medicare, Health First Colorado (Colorado’s Medicaid Program), and TRICARE.

If you have other health insurance in addition to Health First Colorado, your other insurance pays first in most cases. You can get more information about Health First Colorado being the payer of last resort.
