Veterans Benefits Event for Cattaraugus County Veterans at VA Olean Clinic
VA Western New York Healthcare System will host a Veterans benefit event in Cattaraugus County to provide information about VA health care and other Veterans benefits. The VA Olean CBOC event will be held from 1pm-4 pm at 465 North Union Street, Friday, October 28, 2016. The good news for enrollment eligible Veterans is that VA health care coverage meets the Affordable Care Act’s health care standards.
New Veterans seeking enrollment and access to VA health care are encouraged to bring their DD-214 discharge papers, and tax information from 2015. Veterans will then have the opportunity to enroll in VA health care and receive additional information about other Veterans benefits to include vocational, employment, educational opportunities and more! The clinic will also provide flu vaccines and take photos for VA identification cards for eligible Veterans.
