VA Changes Health Care Eligibility

Effective 2015, the Department of Veterans Affairs has eliminated the use of net worth as a determining factor for both health care programs and copayment responsibilities. This change makes VA health care benefits more accessible to lower-income veterans. Instead of combining the sum of Veterans' income with their assets to determine eligibility for medical care and copayment obligations, VA will now only consider a Veteran's gross household income and deductible expenses from the previous year. Veterans may submit updated income information at, or by visiting their nearby VA health care facility. For more information, visit VA's Health Benefits webpage at or call VA toll-free at 1-877-222-VETS (8387).
