Combat Veteran Enhanced Health Care Eligibility

Welcome home and thank you for your service to our country in support of Operation Enduring Freedom, Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation New Dawn!

VA is ready to provide health care and more to our newest Veterans returning from the armed services. Here are some of the benefits VA provides.

Five Years of Enhanced Health Care. You are eligible to receive enhanced VA health care benefits for 5 years following your military separation date. Whether or not you choose to use VA health care after separation, we encourage you to enroll with VA within 5 years to ensure you have access to health care benefits later on.

  • Dental Benefits. You may be eligible for one-time dental care but you must apply for a dental exam within 180 days of your separation date.
  • Primary Health Care for Veterans. The Southern Arizona VA Health Care System provides general and specialized health care services to meet the unique needs of Veterans returning from combat deployments.
  • Non-Health Benefits. Other benefits available from the Veterans Benefits Administration may include: financial benefits, home loans, vocational rehabilitation, education, and more.
