The Department of Veteran’s Affairs (VA) provides medically prescribed prosthetic and sensory aids to eligible Veterans. These aids include artificial limbs, hearing aids, communication aids, eyeglasses, orthopedic braces and shoes, wheelchairs, crutches and canes.
If you need a prosthetic appliance, your VA doctor will prescribe one for you.
Prosthetics is part of the Medical Benefits Package.
You must be enrolled in the VA health care system (or qualify based on one of the exceptions in the law). Go to “Medical Benefits Package” to see the program requirements.
Generally, in order to receive VA benefits and services the Veteran/Servicemember’s character of discharge or service must be under other than dishonorable conditions (e.g., honorable, under honorable conditions, general). However, individuals receiving undesirable, bad conduct, and other types of dishonorable discharges may qualify for VA benefits depending on a determination made by VA.
For more information, see the Program Contact Information below.
