NY/NJ VA Health Care Network
Attention Returning (OEF/OIF/OND) Veterans
Operation Enduring Freedom / Operation Iraqi Freedom / Operation New Dawn (OEF/OIF/OND) Veterans. We value your service and sacrifice.
VA Health Care Upstate New York is committed to supporting our returning troops from Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation New Dawn to make sure they have the health care and benefits they need.
Each medical center and benefits office has program managers to work with Servicemembers and Veterans from Operation Enduring Freedom, Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation New Dawn.
It is very important to note that you have five years from your date of discharge to receive free health care for any condition that may be related to combat service. After the five years, a co-payment status will depend on whether your illness or injury is found to be service-connected.
