26 Feb When Enrollment is Not Required
Normally, veterans need to be enrolled in health care system of VA to receive benefits from the package of Medical Benefits. However, some specific veterans do not need to enroll in order to receive the benefits of medical care.
Enrollment is not required if:
- You were marked by VA to be 50% or more incapacitated from SC conditions (service-connected conditions)
- If any treatment is being undertaken only for a service-related disability which is rated by VA.
- If the veteran was discharged within a year for a disability which occurred due to the service and has been recognized by the military but still not rated by the VA.
Enrolled veterans will continue to be enrolled without reapplying for annual benefit. However, exceptional veterans are required to update their information related to finance on a yearly basis in order to retain their enrollment. These veterans will be informed about their financial information by the VA whenever it is updated.
