Having trouble making your copayments?
Ask for help!Veterans who are having trouble making their copayments for medical care and medications through the VA should ask for help before their debt goes delinquent.
The VA can set up payment plans to help Veterans from having their bills become delinquent. They need to request assistance before the bill is 120 days old, though, or the delinquent balance will be transferred to the Treasury Department for collection actions.
Once the bill is transferred under a program called “Cross Servicing,” Veterans must deal with the Treasury Department and can no longer request repayment assistance or make payments to the VA. Actions taken to collect the overdue bill can include garnishing VA benefits or personal wages even if the Veteran is employed by a civilian company, as well as having the bill turned over to a private collection agency. There will also be additional fees imposed of between $15 and $27 for Treasury collection actions and from 28 to 30 percent of the debt for actions through a private collection agency.
VA health care services will continue without interruption regardless of the status of the Veteran’s bill.
Anyone who would like to ask for assistance with setting up a repayment plan for their VA copayments can call the James A. Haley Veterans’ Hospital Billing Customer Service at (813) 972-2000, extension 4397.
