DVA Gold Card Holders
Members who are, or become, Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) Gold Card holders have the option of retaining, cancelling or modifying their cover with Navy Health.
Where a member chooses to cancel or remove themselves from the membership, they should advise Navy Health in writing of the DVA Gold Card number and issue date. The cover will then be cancelled or modified from the date Navy Health receives this information.
If a member chooses to retain their coverage whilst holding a DVA Gold Card, benefits will be paid on out-of-pocket expenses incurred after the DVA payment, however the benefit must not exceed the total charge or the Navy Health benefits and annual limits.
If the card holder has Premium Hospital coverage, Navy Health will pay the supplement benefit for a private room in a private hospital, as DVA already cover the cost of a shared ward.
Any person who has previously held a DVA Gold Card is entitled to join Navy Health without serving any waiting periods, within 90 days of the ceasing of the Gold Card. Proof of previous DVA Gold Card status is required.
