VA Pharmacy benefits


What does a spouse of a veteran have to pay in the way of deductibles?? In medication,  how do they get their meds from a pharmacy?  What if they don’t have any mate since meds to file with mail order. Is it $25 per prescription? Thank you for your time.

Spouses don't have any VA pharmacy privileges that I'm aware of. A spouse who is eligible for CHAMPVA and who is treated at a VA health care facility may be eligible for a pharmacy benefit but these are few and far between that I know of. Most CHAMPVA beneficiaries get their pharmacy needs through a meds by mail program or at a local pharmacy.
