Do I have to pay for medical services at the VA?

A service connected disabled Veteran does not have to pay for medical care at a VAMC for his/her service connected disability. Depending on the percentage of disability, the service connected Veteran may have co-payments for non-service connected disability services and/or prescriptions. These co-payments may be waived if the Veteran completes a financial means test and meets the criteria for exemption. Note: 50–100 percent service-connected Veterans do not have any co-pays for services and/or prescriptions, even for non-service related conditions. If a Veteran is not service-connected, there may be co-payments for services and prescription costs.
