Are there Out of Pocket Expenses?

There are no out of pocket expenses for DVA patients for dental treatment performed under the Schedule A and Schedule B conditions of the Department of Veterans’ Affairs Dental Schedule. Dental procedures such as examinations, x-rays, cleans, fillings, extractions are covered under these conditions. Complex procedures are subject to DVA annual limits and as long as these limits have not been reached, you won’t be charged for any out of pocket expenses for dental services under DVA Scheme.
