Cost to the Enrolling Veteran
By applying for enrollment, a veteran does not give up his or her right to use other sources of care nor does the veteran have to pay any premium to VA. However, as it has for years, VA charges co-payments to higher-income veterans for medical care not related to military service.

Outpatient Services
Basic Care Services $15/Visit
Services provided by a primary care clinician.

Specialty Care Services $50/Visit
Services provided by a clinical specialist such as surgeon, radiologist, audiologist, optometrist, cardiologist and specialty tests such as magnetic resonance imagery (MRI), computerized axial tomography (CAT) scan, and nuclear medicine studies.

Inpatient Services
There are two inpatient copay rates , the full rate and the reduced rate.

Priority Group 7 and certain other Veterans are responsible for paying 20% of VA's inpatient copay rate.

*Inpatient Copay for the first 90 days of care during a 365-day period. $257
*Inpatient Copay for each additional 90-days of care during a 365-day period. $128
*Daily Charge $2/day

Priority Group 8 and certain other Veterans are responsible for VA's full inpatient copay rate.

*Inpatient Copay for the first 90-days of care during a 365-day period. $1,288
*Inpatient Copay for each additional 90 days if care during a 365-day period. $644
*Daily Charge $10/day

Medications
Veterans in Priority Groups 2-6, for each 30-day or less supply of medication for non-service connected condition. $8
(Veterans in Priority Groups 2 through 6 are limited to $960 annual cap)

Veterans in Priority Groups 7-8, for each 30-day or less supply of medication for treatment of non-service-connected condition. $9
(Veterans in Priority Groups 7-8 do not qualify for medication copay annual cap)

Veterans may or may not have a private insurance policy, but this does not affect their eligibility for VA care or their co-payment requirements. While VA may bill the insurer for certain care costs above any deductible, this does not impact the veteran's health care.
