    Treatment at VA (Veterans Administration) facilities can be a crapshoot. I hear good stories and bad so the answer is, it depends.

    If the VA facilities near you are well staffed and not overcrowded, you might "get by" with VA alone.

    Medicare Part A and B give you more options besides just VA facilities. Some VA pharmacies may not have the medications you need in stock and it may take weeks to receive your meds.

    Having Medicare Part D (drug plan) allows you to purchase your Rx via mail order or at a local pharmacy.

    Medicare Part A and B, along with a good Medicare supplement plan expands your options and may provide shorter wait times for care.
