Affordable Care Act

Veteran asking VA eligibility represenative about enrolling in VA health care.

If you are not enrolled in VA health care, you can apply any time.

Friday, August 9, 2013

Veterans enrolled in VA health care meet the Affordable Care Act, the new health care law coverage standards. Veterans enrolled in VA health care will experience no change in their VA health care benefits or out of pocket costs.

Veterans not enrolled in VA health care are encouraged to enroll and take advantage of the world class care VA provides.

VA’s health care system for Veterans has no enrollment fee, no monthly premiums and no deductibles. Most Veterans also have no out-of-pocket costs, though some may have small copayments for some health care or prescription drugs.

Veterans can apply for VA health care by visiting www.va.gov/healthbenefits/enroll, calling 1-888-823-9656, or visiting the Buffalo or Batavia VA Medical Centers.  Full details on eligibility are available at www.va.gov/opa/publications/benefits_book.
