Health Care for Disabled Veterans
The VA is required to provide necessary medical care to veterans to restore and maintain their health. Veterans are generally eligible if they served for two continuous years (if their service started after 1980) and were discharged from active duty under conditions other than dishonorable. Veterans may be eligible for free or reduced cost stays in a VA nursing home as well. In addition, health care benefits are available for the children and wives (or husbands) of veterans.
