Veterans Affairs (VA) provides comprehensive medical care benefits for eligible veterans. In some cases, veterans may be eligible for benefits if exposed to contaminated water at Camp Lejeune or burn pits in Iraq or Afghanistan.
The VA provides health care benefits for any illness related to the veteran’s exposure to contaminants. Eligible veterans may receive cancer, heart disease, and respiratory disease treatments. The VA also provides monthly benefit payments to dependents of veterans who died from a related illness.
