Can I get help from the VA for a non-service related injury or illness?
Maybe. The Veterans Administration has a tiered system of health care. For treatment, you must fit one of eight priority enrollment groups. If your injury or illness is not connected to your military service, you may qualify if you meet the VA’s financial means test. The VA has a short quiz to help you determine your eligibility for health care benefits.
