reimbursement for medical expenses

MASSACHUSETTS IS ONE OF THE ONLY STATES IN THE NATION WHERE VETERANS, THEIR SPOUSES AND THE WIDOWS AND WIDOWERS OF VETERANS CAN BE REIMBURSED FOR THEIR MEDICAL EXPENSES


Chapter 115 of the Massachusetts General Laws entitles eligible Massachusetts veterans and their spouses, or in some cases widows / widowers, to reimbursement of medical expenses if they meet certain income and asset guidelines. These Guidelines are effective July 1, 2019 – June 30, 2020.


INCOME

Number in Family        Maximum Monthly Income

 1                                           $2081.00

 2 (+)                                    $2817.00


ASSETS

Single                               $5,000.00

Married                            $9,800.00


This program is an entitlement in recognition of your service and not charity. You may be reimbursed for your Medicare Premium and all your other health insurance expenses. If you meet these guidelines, contact your local city or town Veteran’s Service Officer and tell them you would like to submit a Chapter 115 application for benefits. The only requirement is the income guidelines above and a copy of the veterans discharge DD214 indicating active service. If you have any questions regarding these benefits call our Regional Office at 508-422-9931.
