Some vets not charged for copayments
I am a recently discharged combat veteran. Must I pay Department of Veterans Affairs copayments?
Answer: If the services are for the treatment of a condition that may be related to your military service in combat, you will not be charged any copayments. This benefit is limited to a two-year period following military discharge. You will, however, be subject to means testing (and copayments, if applicable) for care of any condition clearly not related to your military service, such as a broken limb or a problem that existed prior to entering service. For information, call 433-0600.
If you have questions about your benefits as a veteran, call Fred Ballard at the Veterans Affairs at 433-0049 or visit the VA Web site at www.va.gov/hawaii
or the Star-Bulletin at 529-4747.
