All retired and active duty persons with over ten years of service from all branches of U.S. military are encouraged to attend informative monthly meetings regarding benefits, privileges, etc. The meetings are conducted by local chapters of The Retired Enlisted Association (TREA) and Disabled American Veterans (DAV). They are held the second Monday of every month at 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. respectively, at the Woodvalley Recreation Center. Center is located at 1907 Gornto Road, Valdosta, Ga. 31602. Service officers will be on hand to assist with preparing forms for desired benefits.
Please call (229) 253-0721 or (229) 834-9208 for further information or assistance appointments.
Military retirees already receive ID cards with no expiration dates; but, renewing ID cards upon expiration has been a continuing requirement for family members.
The FY 2005 Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) modified this requirement and authorized the Services to issue ID cards without an established expiration date to those dependents and survivors of military retirees who are 75 years of age.
In the past, many Medicare-eligible family members simply let their ID cards expire if they were no where near an installation to use the shopping privileges. But since enactment of TRICARE for Life and TRICARE Senior Pharmacy coverage several years ago, older family members who have Medicare A & B now have a medical benefit and must have a current ID card to use the benefits.
Veterans are receiving calls from a company identifying itself as the “Patient Care Group.” This company is claiming that the veterans’ prescriptions are now being dispensed through them and if they wanted to continue to receive their medications, they would need to provide a credit card number. The VA has NOT changed the process of receiving and dispensing prescriptions. This company is a FRAUD.
