Are OEF/OIF/OND/OFS veterans ever charged a co-payment?
Combat veterans are exempt from co-payments for the care of any condition potentially related to their service in a theater of combat operations. However, they may be charged co-payments for treatment clearly unrelated to their military experience, as identified by their VA provider. Conditions not to be considered potentially related to the veteran's combat service include, but are not limited to, care for common colds, injuries from accidents that happened after discharge from active duty, and disorders that existed before joining the military
