Are veterans of Bosnia and Kosovo entitled to health care?
Yes, provided that the veteran served in Bosnia or Kosovo after November 11, 1998. Both areas are designated as areas for which the Department of Defense pays hostile fire or imminent danger pay. The DoD list may be found at http://www.defenselink.mil/comptroller/fmr/07a/07A10.pdf
You may also refer to VHA Directive 2004-017, Establishing Combat Veteran Eligibility, for the list of areas that have been designated as theaters of combat operations
