26 Feb The VA Dental Benefits
The dental benefits offered by the VA requires fulfilling eligibility criteria. These criteria depend on a specific set of guidelines and also greatly vary from the eligibility criteria needed for normal VA medical care. Dental treatment can be provided to eligible combat veterans when it is necessary to correct dental problems under the following conditions:
- The veterans should have been in active service and were released from the military service in certain circumstances except from being dishonorable in the duty period that is about 90 days.
- The release or discharge from service certificate doesn’t carry a certification that was offered to the veteran within the time period of 90 days which is immediately before the release or discharge date, and a thorough dental examination and a complete dental treatment is to be required.
- Within about 180 days from the date of release from service and under the situations other than the dishonorable in service, the VA dental treatment application can be obtained.
