Other Health Insurance (OHI)



If you have other health insurance, you must notify the Chief Business Office Purchased Care of any changes (dropped insurance, changes in health plans, etc) immediately upon those changes taking effect so that proper payment to your claims can be made.

Please Note: CHAMPVA requires that beneficiaries eligible for Medicare, at any age and for any reason, carry both Medicare Parts A and B. If you are eligible for Medicare Part B, you must accept and keep your Medicare Part B coverage, or you will lose your CHAMPVA benefits!

If you obtain a major medical policy, you must also notify Purchased Care that you have a new policy and when it takes effect. We offer several methods to update your other health insurance file:
