Are OIF/OEF veterans ever charged a co-payment?

veterans charged co-payments

Combat veterans are exempt from co-payments for the care of any condition potentially related to their service in a theater of combat operations. However, veterans may be charged co-payments for treatment unrelated to their military service, as identified by their VA provider. Conditions not considered to be related to the veteran’s combat service include, but are not limited to, care for common colds, injuries from accidents that happened after discharge from active duty, and disorders that existed before joining the military. For more information regarding services available to returning Active Duty, National Guard, and Reserve service members of Operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom please visit VA.gov to learn more!
