An eligible CHAMPVA sponsor may be entitled to receive medical care through the VA health care system based on his or her own veteran status. Additionally, as the result of a recent policy change, if the eligible CHAMPVA sponsor is the spouse of another eligible CHAMPVA sponsor, both may now be eligible for CHAMPVA benefits. In each instance where the eligible spouse requires medical attention, he or she may choose the VA health care system or coverage under CHAMPVA for his/her health care needs. If you have been previously denied CHAMPVA benefits and you believe you would now be qualified, please submit an application following the guidelines as listed on the “How to apply” section.
CHAMPVA eligibility can be impacted by changes such as marriage, divorce from the sponsor, or eligibility for Medicare or TRICARE. Changes in status should be reported immediately to:

CHAMPVA | MEDS BY MAIL
The CHAMPVA program offers a robust pharmacy benefit, paying 75% of the allowable charge at any pharmacy for prescription medication. The Meds By Mail program offers prescription medication delivered to your home. The best part of Meds By Mail is that there is NO cost share or co-pay. CHAMPVA also offers a medication by mail program called MEDS BY MAIL.
Pharmacies That Accept CHAMPVA
Pharmacies that are a part of the SXC Health Solutions, Inc. (SXC) network, agree to collect your cost share and send a claim via SXC to CHAMPVA for the remaining amount. However, not all pharmacies are a part of the SXC pharmacy network. In those cases, you may have to pay the entire amount and submit a claim to CHAMPVA yourself. A good way to find a pharmacy that participates in the SXC network, is to visit their website at https://vahac.rxportal.sxc.com.
The CHAMPVA Handbook contains important benefit information that is of interest to you. You are highly encouraged to carefully read the handbook prior to using CHAMPVA benefits.
Locate CHAMPVA Provider
We do not maintain a provider listing. Most Medicare and TRICARE providers will also accept CHAMPVA (but be sure you ask the provider). If you are having difficulty finding a provider, we recommend you visit the Medicare website and use the Search Tools at the bottom of that page to locate a Medicare provider.
If you choose to see a provider who does not accept CHAMPVA, the CHAMPVA SUPPLEMENT INSURANCE will pay or reimburse the cost share. Remember that CHAMPVA cost shares are based on the CHAMPVA allowable amount.
