If you served in the active military, naval or air service and are separated under any condition other than dishonorable, you may qualify for VA health care benefits. Most Veterans who enlisted after September 7, 1980, or entered active duty after October 16, 1981, must have served 24 continuous months or the full period for which they were called to active duty to be eligible. This minimum duty requirement may not apply to Veterans who were discharged for a disability incurred or aggravated in the line of duty, were discharged for a hardship or received an “early out.” Since there are a number of other exceptions to the minimum duty requirements, VA encourages all Veterans to apply to determine their enrollment eligibility. Start with the website to enroll online for health care benefit or write to Health Eligibility Center, Enrollment Eligibility Division, 2957 Clairmont Road, Suite 200, Atlanta, GA 30329-1647; or call 1-877-222-8387 to enroll.
