The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs is ensuring World War II veterans are getting the care they need, as they’re not eligible for no-cost VA health care, medical services and nursing home care.

Any WWII weterans who served between Dec. 7, 1941, and Dec. 31, 1946, is eligible under this expansion, regardless of their length of service or financial status.

These veterans will not have co-pays, enrollment fees or monthly premiums and can keep private providers, Medicare and most other insurance programs to meet their health care needs.

“These members of Greatest Generation answered the call to serve when our nation – and the world – needed them most. Now, it’s our job to serve them in every way that we can,” said VA Under Secretary for Health Dr. Shereef Elnahal in a statement. “We are proud to provide world-class, no-cost health care to these heroes at VA, and we encourage all of them to enroll today.”

Veterans who were not approved for VA health care in the past because of income limits are welcome apply again, as income is no longer a disqualifier.

These benefits are not automatically applied, so those who qualify must apply if not already enrolled. You can learn more or apply right here.
