Was just reminded of this in another post.

New VA Enrollment Information

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has put forth new regulations for certain Priority Group 8 Veterans. These regulations may allow certain Priority Group 8 Veterans to enroll in the VA health care system, although they may have been denied in the past. Included are Veterans who applied for health care on or after January 1, 2009 but were denied because their household income was higher than VA's income limit. Veterans who fall into the Priority Group 8 may soon qualify if their income does not go over the current VA income limit by more than 10%. This new regulation has taken effect on June 15, 2009. For more information about enrollment and to access a calculator to see if you qualify, visit: www.va.gov/healtheligibility. If you have any questions, please call 1-877-222-VETS (8387).





So if you were turned down before, time to try again. Today is the day it starts.

Also this site has some good info, those already covered should use it really good way to renew subscriptions.

    And once you're in you're in. I got in back in the 90s when I was making about $4,000/yr no copays. When my income increased to 30K+ I had to start paying copays $15 doctors visit $8 for scripts for 30 days $16 60days $24 90 days and so on.
