Veterans Medical Benefits

VA will provide health care, including medical or other treatment as required, to any honorably discharged veteran who meets the eligibility requirements. VA will also furnish care to certain persons who received an other than honorable discharge from service, but only for a disability which was incurred in or aggravated by service, in the line of duty.

Service Eligibility Requirements:

  • For service prior to September 1, 1980 a veteran must have one day or more of active duty to be eligible to receive healthcare.
  • For service after September 1, 1980, a veteran must have served twenty-four consecutive months of active duty. The exception to this rule is if the veteran has served one or more days in combat.

You must complete a VA Form 10-10EZ Application for Health Benefits, and submit it and a copy of your DD-214 discharge papers to the nearest VA medical facility.

The applications must be sent to the hospital of jurisdiction over the satellite clinics. Therefore, when applying to the Brunswick County VA Clinic or the Wilmington VA Health Care Center, you will need to mail the application to the Fayetteville Health Care Center. If you are applying to the Myrtle Beach VA Clinic, you will need to submit the application to the VAMC Charleston.

Mail to:

Fayetteville Health Care Center
7300 Raeford Road
Fayetteville, NC 28304

Attn: Health Eligibility

OR

VAMC Charleston
109 Bee Street
Charleston, SC 29401-5799

Attn: Health Eligibility

 

Once you submit your application for health benefits, VA will determine your eligibility, and assign you to a Priority Group.
The VA uses priority groups to balance demand for VA health care enrollment. There are eight different priority groups. These priority groups are based upon whether the veteran has a service connected disability, received a Medal of Honor, a Purple Heart, or was a Prisoner of War (POW), if the veteran served in combat during specified periods, and then it is based on the veteran’s household income.

To check on the status of your application contact the VA Medical Center where you mailed your application and ask to speak with Health Eligibility.
