VA Health Care Outpatient Services

Outpatient Care: A three-tiered co-pay system is used for all outpa¬tient services. The co-pay is $15 for a primary care visit and $50 for some specialized care. Certain services do not require a co-pay. 

Outpatient Visits Not Requiring Co-pays: Co-pays do not apply to publicly announced VA health fairs or out¬patient visits solely for preventive screening and/or immunizations, such as immunizations for influenza and pneumococcal, or screening for hypertension, hepatitis C, tobacco, alcohol, hyperlipidemia, breast cancer, cervical cancer, colorectal cancer by fecal occult blood test¬ing, education about the risks and benefits of prostate cancer screening and smoking cessation counseling (individual or group). Laboratory, flat film radiology, and electrocardiograms are also exempt from co-pays.
