VA Eliminates Co-Payment

The Department of Veterans Affairs will no longer charge veterans a co-payment when they receive care in their homes from VA health professionals using video conferencing. This change will primarily benefit veterans with limited mobility, such as spinal cord injury patients. Whenever medically appropriate, VA will make the home the preferred place of care for veterans to ensure timely and convenient access to VA services. Home telehealth does not replace the need for nursing home care or for traditional noninstitutional care programs. However, it enhances the ability for many veterans to better understand and manage chronic diseases. For more information about telehealth, visit VA's Telehealth webpage.
