Generally, veterans are not required to enroll if:
*Seeking care for a VA rated, service-connected disability
*Rated with a service-connected disability of 50% or more
*Less than one year has passed since discharged for a disability that the military determined was incurred or aggravated in the line of duty, but VA has not yet rated.

Ages Served:
18 and older

Types of disabilities served:
All physical and mental disabilities

Area of Minnesota served:

Eligibility criteria:
*Must meet VA eligibility criteria
*Enrollment is based on priority groups
*A physician's prescription is required for service

Maximum amount individual can receive:
If the disability is service-connected, devices and services are provided at no cost to the veteran. The VA reclaims and recycles devices when the veteran no longer needs them.

Non-service-connected veterans may be subject to co-payments for primary or specialty care, depending on eligibility.
