For most veterans, entry into the VA health care system begins with applying for enrollment. Veterans must complete a 10-10EZ(Application for Health Benefits). The form may be obtained from any VA health care facility, the Veterans Office, or by calling the VA Health Benefits Service Center at 1-877-222-VETS (8387). The form can also be printed off this website under the "Forms and Documents" tab or visit the VA website at: http://www.va.gov/healtheligibility.

Veterans do not have to be enrolled if they:
(1) have a service-connected disability of 50 percent or more
(2) want care for a disability the military determined was incurred or aggravated in the line of duty, but which the VA has not yet rated, during the 12-month period following discharge
(3) want care for a service-connected disability only
