Children of Women Vietnam Veterans Health Care Benefits Program

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) provides VA-financed health care benefits to women Vietnam Veterans’ birth children who the Veterans Benefits Administration (VBA) has determined to have a covered birth defect. The Children of Women Vietnam Veterans (CWVV) Health Care Benefits Program is not a comprehensive health care plan and only covers those services necessary for the treatment of a covered birth defect and associated medical conditions. It does not cover care that is unrelated to a covered birth defect. The VHA Office of Community Care (VHA CC) in Denver, Colorado, manages the CWVV Health Care Benefits Program, including the authorization of medical benefits and the subsequent processing and payment of claims.

Eligibilty

Children whose biological mother is a Vietnam Veteran and who were conceived after the date the Veteran entered the Republic of Vietnam (period beginning Feb. 28, 1961, and ending May 7, 1975), and who have one of the covered birth defects as determined by the VBA are eligible for the program.

Enrollment

To enroll in the CWVV Health Care Benefits Program, eligibility must first be established for a monetary award under the Veterans Benefits Administration (VBA). The Denver VA Regional Office makes the determination regarding that entitlement. You must mail a completed Application for Benefits For Certain Children of Vietnam Veterans With Disabilities, VA Form 21-0304, and medical evidence to the VA Regional Office, Veterans Service Center (339/21). Once eligibility is determined, the VA will notify the Office of Community Care and enrollment in the CWVV Health Care Benefits Program is automatic.
