10-10EZR

Complete only the sections that apply to you and sign and date the form.

Step 2: Completing your application ...
Review the table in Step 1 to find out what sections you should complete. Answer all questions in those sections. If you need more space to answer a question, attach a sheet of paper to the form containing your name and Social Security Number. For each question that you need more room, write "Continuation of Item" and write the section and question number.

Section II - Insurance Information.
Include information for all health insurance policies that cover you. If you have more than one health insurer, provide this information on a separate sheet of paper and attach to the application. If you have access to a copier, attach a copy of your insurance cards, Medicare card and/or Medicaid card (Medicaid is a federal/state health insurance program for certain low-income people). Bring these cards with you to each health care appointment.

Section V - Financial Disclosure.
The financial assessment is used to determine whether certain veterans qualify for cost-free health care services for their NSC conditions and to assign their priority for enrollment. You should review the table in Step 1 to see if your eligibility for health care benefits requires or may be based on a financial assessment. Recent combat veterans (e.g., OEF/OIF) are not required to provide their financial information for 5 years post discharge or if they applied for enrollment after January 27, 2008 and were discharged before January 28, 2003 until January 27, 2011, but like other veterans may provide it to establish their eligibility for travel reimbursement, cost-free medication and/or medical care for services unrelated to military experience and consideration for waiver of travel deductibles. You are not required to disclose your financial information. If a financial assessment is not used to determine your priority for enrollment you may choose not to disclose your information and agree to make copayments for treatment of your NSC conditions. If a financial assessment is used to determine your eligibility for travel assistance or waiver, and you do not disclose your financial information, you will not be eligible for these benefits. If you are such a veteran by signing this application you are agreeing to pay the applicable VA copayments as required by law. Section VI - Dependent Information. Use a separate sheet of paper for additional dependent children. You may count your spouse as your dependent even if you did not live together, as long as you contributed $600 or more in support last calendar year. You may count your biological children, adopted children, and stepchildren as dependents. But these children must be unmarried and under the age of 18, or be at least 18 but under 23 and attending high school, college or vocational school on a full or part-time basis, or have become permanently unable to support themselves before reaching the age of 18. Count child support contributions even if not paid in regular set amounts. Contributions can include tuition payments or payments of medical bills.

Section VII - Previous Calendar Year Gross Annual Income of Veteran, Spouse and Dependent Children.
Use a separate sheet of paper for additional dependent children. Report: gross annual income from employment, except for income from your farm, ranch, property or business, including information about your wages, bonuses, tips, severance pay and other accrued benefits and your child's income information if it could have been used to pay your household expenses. Report: net income from your farm, ranch, property or business. Report: other income amounts, including retirement and pension income, Social Security Retirement and Social Security Disability income, compensation benefits such as VA disability, unemployment, Workers and black lung, cash gifts, interest and dividends, including tax exempt earnings and distributions from Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) or annuities. Do Not Report: Welfare, Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and need-based payments from a government agency, profit from the occasional sale of property, income tax refunds, reinvested interest on Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs), scholarships and grants for school attendance, disaster relief payment or proceeds of casualty insurance, loans, Agent Orange and Alaska Native Claim Settlement Acts Income and payments to foster parents.

Section VIII - Previous Calendar Year Deductible Expenses.
Report nonreimbursed medical expenses paid by you or your spouse. Include expenses for medical and dental care, drugs, eyeglasses, Medicare, medical insurance premiums and other health care expenses paid by you for dependents and persons for whom you have a legal or moral obligation to support. Do not list expenses if you expect to receive reimbursement from insurance or other sources. Section IX - Previous Calendar Year Net Worth. Use a separate sheet of paper for additional dependent children. Your net worth is the market value of all the interest and rights you have in any kind of property. However net worth does not include your single-family residence and a reasonable lot area surrounding it. It also does not include the personal things you use every day like your vehicle, clothing and furniture.

Step 3: Submitting your application ...
What do I do when I have finished my application?
Read Section IV (Paperwork Reduction and Privacy Act Information), Section X (Consent to Copayments), and Section XI (Assignment of Benefits). Make sure you sign and date VA Form 10-10EZR in Section XI. You or an individual to whom you have delegated your Power of Attorney must sign and date the form. If you sign with an "X", then you must have 2 people you know witness you as you sign. They must then sign the form and print their names. If the form is not signed and dated appropriately, VA will return it for you to complete. This will result in a delay in processing your application. Attach any continuation sheets and necessary material to your application.

Where do I send my application?
Mail the original application with a copy of your supporting materials to your local VA health care facility. You can find the address in your local telephone book, by calling toll-free 1-877-222-VETS (8387), or on the Internet at http://www.va.gov.
