Veteran Health Indiana

 

Compensation and Pension (C&P)

The Compensation and Pension (C&P) Office works in conjunction with the Veterans Benefits Administration (VBA) to determine a Veteran's eligibility for health care.

 Compensation and Evaluation (C&P) examination is conducted to evaluate if a Veteran’s condition(s) is service-connected or if a pre-existing condition was aggravated by military service and determine a Veteran’s eligibility for disability benefits.  No medical treatment is provided during this evaluation.

 Agent Orange Registry Program:  Any active duty military service Veteran who was assigned and served in the Republic of Vietnam between 1962 and 1975 and has a concern relating to the exposure or handling of the herbicide dioxin is encouraged to join this program.  Program includes a comprehensive briefing and evaluation.

 Gulf War Registry program:  Any Veteran who served on active duty in Southwest Asia during the Persian Gulf War between August 2, 1990 and the official termination date (still to be established) is encouraged to join this program.   A health examination is offered to detect possible long-term health problems related to Gulf War service.

Airborne Hazards and Burn Pits Registry program: Burn pits were a common way to get rid of waste at military sites in Iraq and Afghanistan. Complete the free voluntary medical evaluation. Check your eligibility and sign up through an online questionnaire.

Camp Lejeune: Water Contamination:  From the 1950s through the 1980s, people living or working at the U.S. Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, were potentially exposed to drinking water contaminated with industrial solvents, benzene, and other chemicals.

Special Examinations:  The VA maintains several health registry evaluation programs to track the health of Veterans exposed to environmental hazards during military service. For example, VA offers a free Ionizing Radiation Registry health exam to all eligible Veterans to alert them to possible long-term health problems.

Our C&P Office does not answer questions directly related to your claim. VA decides these claims on a case-by-case basis. File a claim online.
