    In May I will be 65 and at that time will be eligible for Medicare benefits. I am receiving VA benefits. How will these two work together???

    Medicare will not reimburse VA for medical care received as other private insurance companies do. You will still receive the level of care you currently receive. If you receive monetery compensation for a % of disability, your monthly stipend will not be effected.
