Relaxation of income requirements will yield coverage for more veterans

Recently, the Veteran's Administration announced some veteran's considered Priority Group 8 (High Income) may be now eligible for benefits beginning June 2009. According to VA.gov, "These Veterans would qualify if their household income does not exceed the current VA income thresholds (means test threshold and/or geographic means test threshold) by more than 10%."

This comes 6 years after the enrollment of priority group 8 veterans was stopped in 2003. The VA has supplied a calculator to determine if you are within the new guidelines.

Specific information about coverage, though not updated with this recent change, can be found at VA Benefits .

For the facility closest to you choose VA Outpatient Clinics or VA Hospitals
