Medical Care - Veterans Hospitals and Clinics in the Best Military Retirement Areas

Veterans Salute

It's no wonder there are over 1,400 Veterans Medical Centers and Clinics throughout the United States when you discover one out of four social security recipients or approximately 9 million people are military veterans. Most veterans are eligible for quality health care benefits. It makes sense veterans would want to retire in areas in close proximity to Veterans Hospitals and Veterans Medical Centers which saves them money. The United States Department of Veterans Affairs provides a list of medical facilities by state on their website: www2.va.gov

To make it easier for veterans, we grouped these Veterans Hospitals by geographic regions verses the alphabetical list provided on the government website. We focused the list on the best states to retire in the Southeast; Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee. As you scroll down the list, each state begins with the northern region and moves to the south part of the state.

Do you know, Florida and Tennessee does not tax military pensions? North Carolina taxes over $4,000 of annual income, South Carolina taxes over $10,000 of annual income after age 65 and Georgia taxes over $35,000 of income over age 62. Beginning in 2012, Georgia is phasing out state taxes on retirement income up to $130,000 for joint filers. 

Whether you support the war efforts or not, how can we not be grateful to America's veterans who risked their lives to keep us safe and protect our freedom when called to serve. They earned quality health care. If you're a veteran, my forever thanks for your selfless service. 

Welcome home. As long as this list is, it was created to help you and is easier to analyze various regions in a state rather than using the government's website.

East Coast Florida
It is so difficult to work with the ARB. I thought about moving somewhere else after the 4th denial.
Eastern Tennessee
We've lived here now for 7 years and wouldn't trade it for anywhere else.
Western North Carolina
Although it would be easy to think it, there is no pretense here. Just friendly people enjoy this amazing place.
