according to the VA guidelines the threshold varies depending on where you live...... but on average to qualify for 100% free care the income threshold is around $40K for a single person up to $70K for a family of 4 ($70K/$100K in a city like St Louis for example)

pretty reasonable thresholds IMO...... anyone making above those levels can surely afford private insurance which is always a better alternative than VA benefits

of course above those thresholds you most likely still qualify for benefits.... you will simply have a co-pay which is comparable to the co-pays of most private insurance policies
