Veterans are responsible for the copayments associated with Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) health care. If not paid in a timely manner, these copayments will be referred to the Department of Treasury for collection. However, if at any time veterans are unable to make their copayments, VA can help with arrangements to include repayment plans and other debt relief options such as a compromise or waiver. VA will also consider temporary or permanent eligibility changes to accommodate a veteran's financial situation. Veterans are encouraged to contact VA directly to make payment arrangements within 120 days from the date the charge is applied to the account. For more information, read the VA VAntage Point Blog.
