VA Will Start Collecting Over-payment and Medical Co-pays

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is restarting over-payment notices for new debts and debts that were paused during the COVID-19 pandemic from April 6, 2020, through Sept. 30, 2021.

Although debt collections and collections on medical copayments restarted on Oct. 1, 2021, VA will not begin to deduct debts from benefits payments until January 2022.

Options to request debt relief due to financial hardship will be included in debt notification letters that will be sent to veterans. For more information, read the press
