What is a Non-compensable disability?

A noncompensable disability is one which VA has determined is service-connected, but does not meet the scheduler requirements for a compensable evaluation.  Veterans are entitled to medical care at the VA Medical Center for any service-connected condition, but do not receive a monetary payment for a noncompensable disability.  The only exception to this is if a veteran is suffering from two or more separate permanent service-connected disabilities of such character as clearly to interfere with normal employability, even though none of the disabilities may be of compensable degree under the 1945 Schedule for Rating Disabilities the rating agency is authorized to apply a 10-percent rating, but not in combination with any other rating.
