Information regarding VA medical care co-payments is available on the website for the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, on the Health Benefits Copays page. The page displays common co-pay costs and describes how veterans are able to determine if they are eligible for totally free health care.
When individuals enroll for veterans' health benefits, most must complete financial assessment tests to assess their eligibility for free medical services, according to the VA. If veterans do not participate in the assessment, they do not receive health care benefits unless they consent to co-payments. In addition, any veterans whose earnings are greater than VA income limits are required to make co-pays.
