VA Health Care

Eligibility for VA Healthcare is determined by enrollment priority groups.  Veterans who are not in a specialty category (recently discharged combat veteran, service connected rating, purple heart recipient, etc) may qualify for VA medical care based on annual income and/or net worth below the VA national income threshold and geographically adjusted income threshold for their resident location.

Initial access to VA medical care is gained by completing VA Fm 10-10ez and forwarding it along with your DD 214 to the enrollment & eligibility center at the VA medical facility that your are requesting services.  Ingham & Clinton County veterans may contact a veteran benefits counselor at (517) 887-4331 for assistance with applying for VA medical care.

The Veterans Health Benefits Guide is a handbook that is tailored specific for each Veteran and provides detailed information about the VA health services the Veteran may be eligible to receive.

The Veteran Health Benefit Handbook provides answers to common questions such as contact information for the Veteran's local facility, instructions on how to schedule appointments, guidelines for communicating treatment needs and an explanation of the Veteran's responsibilities, such as co-pays, if applicable.
