How do veterans qualify to get medical care at a VA hospital?
A veteran wants must complete and submit form 10-10EZ, with a copy of the military discharge papers to the local VA hospital admissions department. Subsequently, they will set an appointment.
If the veteran is receiving NSC pension plus A & A or housebound benefits, the veteran receives meds, medical equipment, incontinence supplies, glasses, hearing aids, etc. free without going to the hospital. Again, submit form
10-10EZ, but attach a copy of pension award letter, a copy of discharge papers, and prescriptions from his private doctor. This benefit is not contingent on financial information.
Priority to see a physician is in the following order and based on availability:
recently discharge veterans (within five years)
service connected and POWs
NSC pension veterans with A & A or housebound
- everyone else
