Health Care Eligibility and Enrollment for Veterans

Eligibility for VA health care is dependent upon a number of variables, which may influence the final determination of the services for which you qualify. These factors include the nature of a veteran’s discharge from military service (e.g., honorable, other than honorable, dishonorable), length of service, VA adjudicated disabilities (commonly referred to as service-connected disabilities), income level, and available VA resources among others.

Generally, you must be enrolled in VA health care system to receive benefits offered in the Medical Benefits Package. To apply for VA health care benefits, including enrollment you must fill out an application. We use the application to determine:

    * Whether you have qualifying service as a veteran
    * What your veteran status is so that you can be placed into one of the priority groups

Effective January 17, 2003, VA suspended NEW enrollment of veterans assigned to Priority Group 8 (VA’s lowest priority group consisting of higher income veterans). If you are a veteran enrolling for the first time on or after January 17, 2003, your income exceeds the current year income threshold, and you have no other special eligibilities such as a compensable service connected condition or recent combat service, you are not eligible for enrollment at this time. Veterans enrolled in Priority Group 8 on or before January 16, 2003, will remain enrolled and continue to be eligible for the full-range of VA health care benefits.
