Veterans Administration Eliminates Co-Pay for Telehealth

On May 7, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) eliminated copayments for veterans receiving in-home care via telehealth technology as written in the final rule in the Federal Register. 

This new regulation exempts in-home video telehealth care from having any required copayment. 

The VA believes that removing the co-pay will eliminate a cost that may have previously discouraged veterans from choosing to use in-home video telehealth as a care option. 

The VA has attempted to make home a preferred place of care, whenever medically appropriate and possible.
