VA operates an annual enrollment system that helps to manage the provision of health care. VA applies a variety of factors during the application verification process when determining a Veterans’ eligibility for enrollment, but once a Veteran is enrolled, that Veteran remains enrolled in the VA health care system and maintains access to certain VA health benefits.
Once your application is successfully processed, you will be assigned an enrollment Priority Group. Certain Veterans may be eligible for more than one Enrollment Priority Group. In that case, VA will always place you in the highest Priority Group that you are eligible. Under the VA Health Benefits Package, the same services are generally available to all enrolled Veterans. Once enrolled, you will receive a personalized Veterans Handbook, which will detail your VA health benefits and provide important information concerning your access to VA health care.
You may enroll at any time by completing a VA Form 10-10EZ, Application for Health Benefits online at www.va.gov/healthbenefits/enroll, by calling 1-877-222-VETS (8387) or by visiting your local VA health care facility.
You may request to disenroll from VA Health Care, commonly referred to as cancel/decline, at any time. To request to be disenrolled, you must submit a signed and dated document requesting to be disenrolled from VA health care to a VA Medical Center or you may mail the request to:
VA Health Eligibility Center (HEC) 2957 Clairmont Road Atlanta, GA 30329
If you decide to cancel your VA health care coverage, please note this may impact your health care coverage requirements under the Affordable Care Act if you do not have other qualifying health care.
You may reapply for enrollment at any time by completing a new VA Form 10-10EZ, Application for Health Benefits online at www.va.gov/healthbenefits/enroll, by calling 1-877-222-VETS (8387) or by visiting your local VA health care facility. Please note that you will be considered a new applicant and eligibility for enrollment will be based upon eligibility requirements in place at that time.
