About VA Health Care Coverage

If you qualify for VA health care, you’ll receive coverage for the services you need to help you get—and stay—healthy. Learn more about your health care benefits. https://www.vets.gov/health-care/about-va-health-care/

Benefits, Eligibility & Income

According to U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, if all requirements are met, the Department of Veterans Affairs determines eligibility for the Aid and Attendance benefit by adjusting for un-reimbursed medical expenses from the veteran’s or surviving spouse’s total household income. If the remaining income amount falls below the annual income threshold for the Aid and Attendance benefit, VA pays the difference between the claimant’s household income and the Aid and Attendance threshold.

To more information on qualifications and your potential benefits please see the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs website:
