26 Feb Copay and Charges for VA Health Care Services
A monthly premium is not necessary to make use of VA care, although copay may be required.
Health care services can be provided to almost all the veterans for free of cost depending on a remunerative service-related condition and other factors of eligibility; however, the veterans must go through a yearly financial assessment to find whether they are eligible to receive the free health services.
The veterans must agree to pay for the copays to be qualified for the free VA health care services. This copay is applicable for those veterans who have a gross household income and their average net worth that is more than the threshold determined by the VA and also for those veterans who don’t want to undergo the annual financial assessment. Also, it must be noted that veterans who don’t agree to provide their net worth details and those new veterans who enroll for health care services after 16th January 2003 are not eligible.
