The Beneficiary Travel program provides eligible Veterans and other beneficiaries mileage reimbursement, common carrier (plane, train, bus, taxi, light rail etc.), or when medically indicated, "special mode" (ambulance, wheelchair van) transport for travel to and from VA health care, or VA authorized non-VA health care for which the Veteran is eligible.
A Veteran may be eligible for Beneficiary travel services if the following criteria are met: Veterans may apply for travel reimbursement by completing VA Form 10-3542 (Veteran/Beneficiary Claim for Reimbursement of Travel Expenses).
The reimbursement will be paid for travel to the closest VA facility unless a different location was determined by VA.
The deductible is .00 one-way (.00 round trip).
