Program Information

The Veteran Dental Financial Assistance program assists anyone with Veteran status, diagnosed with blood cancer, regardless of dental benefit class through the Veterans Administration (VA).  The Program covers the cost of dental services required to begin lifesaving therapy or as a consequence of therapy for a blood cancer. 

Covered expenses include, but are not limited to, extractions, root canals, jaw surgery, dentures, cavity fillings, and gum disease. All expenses for the required dental care will be covered, as long as funding is available. Veterans can receive services more than once.  

Although treatment takes place at various sites, the program is available to all Veterans as long as they reside in the U.S. or a U.S. territory and can travel to the sites. 

 

Eligibility Requirements

  • Anyone with Veteran status, with a blood cancer diagnosis, regardless of dental benefit class through the Veterans Administration (VA), who requires dental procedures to begin therapy for a blood cancer or as a consequence of therapy for a blood cancer. 
  • Veterans do not need to be affiliated with the VA at the present time. 
  • Veterans must reside in the U.S. or a U.S. territory. 
  • There is no household income limit to qualify and dental insurance is not required.
