benefits exempt from claims or creditors?
Compensation payments are exempt from claims or creditors. With certain exceptions the payments are not assignable
and are not subject to attachment, levy or seizure except as to claims of the United States.
If I ever cancel my health care coverage, may I re-enroll?
You may reapply for enrollment at any time by completing a new VA Form 10-10EZ, Application for Health Care Benefits. You may call 1-877-222-8387 to reapply by telephone.

What is a geographic income limit?
Recognizing the cost of living can vary significantly from one geographic area to another, therefore, Congress added
income limits based on geographic locations to the existing VA income limits for financial assessment purposes. Veterans whose income falls between the VA income limit and the geographic income
limit for the Veteran’s locale will have their inpatient medical care copayments reduced by 80%.
What happens if, at the end of the process, my income is
verified to be higher than the income limits?
Your copay status will be changed from
copay exempt to copay required, which may result in disenrollment due to enrollment restrictions for Veterans whose income
exceeds the income limits. VA facilities involved in your care
will be notified of your change in status and to initiate billing for services provided during that income year. Your enrollment
priority status may be changed if your financial status is adjusted by the income verification (IV) process. If your enrollment status is changed, you will be notified by mail.
As a veteran, am I eligible for dental care?
Dental benefits are provided by the VA according to law. In
some instances, VA is authorized to provide extensive dental care, while in other cases, treatment may be limited.The eligibility for outpatient dental care is not the same as for
most other VA medical benefits and is categorized in classes. For instance, if you
are eligible for VA dental care under Class I, II(c) or IV, you are eligible for any necessary dental care to maintain or
restore oral health and masticatory function, including repeat care. Other classes have time and/or service limitations.
