Am I Eligible?
Recent federal decisions makes income a determinant for eligibility, but even veterans who do not meet the income requirements are still eligible for full VA Healthcare if they meet certain criteria.
Character of service is important. You must possess a honorable or general under honorable active duty discharge to qualify; however, in some cases, we can work to upgrade your discharge in order to qualify you.
The VA places veterans into priority groups. Those can be found here, but this post aims to simplify this information a little bit for quicker understanding. If you meet some of the following criteria, you should apply.
1.) Service-connected disabled veterans
2.) Medal of Honor, Purple Heart and POW veterans
3.) Veterans who served in the country of Vietnam
4.) Veterans exposed to toxins during service to include agent orange, burn pits and others
5.) Recently discharged veterans
6.) Combat veterans
7.) Veterans who served in the Persian Gulf (any era)
8.) Low-income veterans
*If you qualify based on a listed criteria, but are over the income standard, you can still utilize the VA Healthcare system if you are willing to pay standard co-pays for services.
**If you meet any of the criteria or think in any way you may qualify, please contact us and we will help you navigate the often complicated eligibility criteria.
The income standards are also difficult for many to understand, but don't let income prevent you from asking us if VA Healthcare is a possibility. Income standards are based on the national standard shown below and geographically adjusted income levels. If you are on or around this standards, please know you income can be adjusted based on medical expenses or large changes in income from one year to the next.
