> VA - Travel Reimbursement
VA can reimburse you:
- With a mileage allowance (in most cases),
- By paying for special kinds of transportation (ambulance, wheelchair van etc.) when such transportation is considered necessary for VA-authorized travel.
The current allowable reimbursement amount is 28.5 cents per mile with a $7.77 deductible for each one-way visit, or $15.54 for each round-trip visit.
If your out-of-pocket costs exceed $46.62 in a given month, you can be reimbursed for the entire expense for any other authorized travel for that month.
To receive reimbursement for special mode transportation, you must be traveling to a VA or VA-authorized non-VA facility for a scheduled appointment.
