I had to have a tooth distracted and now that it's gone I have problems chewing. will the VA pay for me to have dental work done to have my tooth replaced?
It will not hurt to ask. all they could say is no. If you did not receive dental work within 3 months (90 days) of your EAS, there might be a possibility to receive care as well. I would suggest contacting your local VA rep and just ask. good luck!
Hello. as a Vet I can tell you that any health service you require that doesn't fall under your being a "Retired" twenty plus year Vet…you will have to pay a prorated rate for those services and that will be based on your "gross family" income, meaning you and your spouse, if you have one. Now, if your dental issues are "service connected", there is no reason they would not provide the services you need at no cost to you…good luck and I wish you well.
Our local VA hospital has a dental office on site… see if yours does, too.
VA will only cover dental services if you have a service connected dental disabilaty or if you are 100% disabled due to service connection.
