What if the health care problem is obviously unrelated to combat service (e.g., happened after return to the United States)? Can VA provide treatment?

Yes, these individuals may be treated for medical conditions that are not related to combat service, as determined by a VA provider. This medical treatment may be provided on a “co-payment required” basis based on the veteran’s enrollment and copay status.
