U.S. Representative Frank A. LoBiondo announced a veterans enrollment clinic in Bridgeton at American Legion Post #95 to help local veterans in determining their eligibility and, if eligible, facilitate their participation in the VA healthcare system. The Bridgeton enrollment clinic will be held on Monday, May 24th.
As at previous enrollment clinics, there will be representatives from the Wilmington VA Medical Center on hand to answer veterans’ questions and explain eligibility requirements. The VA recently announced it has re-opened enrollment to its medical benefits package for Category 8 veterans by increasing the income threshold by 10 percent. Category 8 veterans are strongly encouraged to attend and enroll. Veterans who plan to attend are asked to bring their DD-214 forms and tax forms.
Veterans can also determine their eligibility and enroll in the VA healthcare system, and ask additional questions as well, by contacting the VA at 1-877-222-VETS or visit the website www.va.gov.
