The U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims (CAVC) ruled in a case entitled Wolfe v. Wilkie that the VA must reimburse veterans for all of their past and future out-of-pocket emergency medical expenses incurred at non-VA facilities which were not covered by the veteran’s private insurance other than copayments. Veterans who are affected by this court decision should receive a notice from the VA advising them of their right to continue to pursue relevant claims. The notice indicates the dates of service at issue for the particular veteran so it is easy for the veteran to ask the VA to re-examine any claim related to such service dates. If you are not sure whether you are entitled to pursue reimbursement as a result of the court ruling or if you received the VA notice but have questions, contact the VA directly at 1-877-466-7124 for assistance.
