Once enrolled for medical care, do I need to enroll each year?

Once enrolled for medical care, do I need to enroll each year?
Enrollments are renewed annually and many veterans will stay enrolled each year without any action on their part. Most veterans who are not receiving monthly compensation or pension checks from VA, however, must complete an annual financial statement known as a Means Test. Completing a Means Test allows the VA to place you in the correct Priority Group for determination of copayments. It also ensures that your local VA receives reimbursement from VA for the health care provided to you. We would be glad to help you with the forms. If you need assistance, please contact your local VA facility Enrollment Office.
