There are no premiums for the VA health plan.

For service-connected treatment there is no cost.

Veterans whose incomes and net worth are above the means test, are 0% service-connected disabled and require treatment for a nonservice-connected condition, may be assessed co-pays in 2013 of:

  • Medication: $8 for each 30 day or less supply of medication. For more information, see: VA Drug Benefit
  • Outpatient: $15 for each visit for basic care services provided by a primary care clinician; $50 for each visit for specialty care services provided by a clinical specialist.
  • Inpatient: Rates vary per priority group. For information, click here offsite link.

Veterans may request a waiver of co-pays owed, as well as a hardship determination. If the hardship determination is approved, any prior co-pay and deductible debt and future co-pays and deductibles are waived.
