VA resumes debt collections after 18-month pause due to the coronavirus pandemic


Recommended Posts

WASHINGTON — Millions of veterans must begin paying back debts to the Department of Veterans Affairs now that the agency resumed collections following an 18-month pause.

The collection of debts from medical co-pays and benefits overpayments had been stalled to help ease financial hardships caused by the coronavirus pandemic. The pause initially ended Jan. 1, but VA officials extended it through September after receiving pressure from lawmakers and advocates who argued the economic effects of the pandemic were still being felt by veterans.
