I am considering applying for VA health care or previously applied for VA health care and was denied based on income. Will this change in the law affect my eligibility?

For Veterans who are not currently enrolled in VA health care, it is possible that recognition of a same-sex spouse and inclusion of spousal income could either render the Veteran eligible to enroll or preclude the Veteran from being eligible to enroll. This will depend on the impact of the spousal income on the couple's household income relative to the applicable income threshold. Information on income thresholds is available here http://www.va.gov/healthbenefits/cost/income_thresholds.asp.
