Agent Orange Registry Health Exam for Veterans

The VA’s Agent Orange Registry health exam alerts veterans to possible long-term health problems that may be related to Agent Orange exposure during their military service. The registry data helps VA understand and respond to these health problems more effectively.

Contact your local VA Environmental Health Coordinator about getting an Agent Orange Registry health exam.

About the Agent Orange Registry Health Exam

This comprehensive health exam includes an exposure history, medical history, physical exam, and any tests if needed. A VA health professional will discuss the results face-to-face with the Veteran and in a follow-up letter.

Important points about registry health exams:

• Free to eligible Veterans and no co-payment

• Not a disability compensation exam or required for other VA benefits

• Enrollment in VA’s health care system not necessary

• Based on Veterans’ recollection of service, not on their military records

• Will not confirm exposure to Agent Orange

• Veterans can receive additional registry exams, if new problems develop

• Veterans’ family members are not eligible for an Agent Orange Registry health exam.

Interested in disability compensation? File a claim for disability compensation for Agent Orange-related health problems. During the claims process, VA will check military records to verify either exposure to Agent Orange or qualifying military service. If necessary, VA will set up a separate exam for compensation.

    VA/Feds admit to spraying A.O. on Korean DMZ, presumptive dates are 68 to 71. Feds also admit the dioxins reside in soil for decades.

    But they refuse to admit, that veterans served on the DMZ in that very soil till 1991 and were exposed to the Dioxins. And now those very veterans are now fighting A.O. illnesses.

    Many more don’t even know they were exposed and/or A.O. was even used in Korea!

    Last, people act like Vietnam Vets were the only ones exposed, they are not!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Problem with this, they still use bogus presumptive dates for Korea. 68 to 71, is far from covering Korean veterans who were exposed………….
