VA’s Environmental Health Registries gather information about the health of Veterans exposed to certain environmental hazards during military service. Some Veterans may qualify for more than one registry. Use the chart to the right to help determine your

eligibility. If you have any health concerns, talk to your health care provider. For more information about any of the registries, go to www.publichealth.va.gov/exposures.

A health registry evaluation is not a claim for VA benefits and may not confirm exposure to environmental hazards during military service. Veterans who want to be considered for disability compensation for exposure-related health problems must file a claim. More information is available at www.benefits.va.gov/compensation/types-disability.asp.

 

To schedule a registry evaluation, contact an Environmental Health Coordinator at any VA medical facility. A list of Coordinators is available online at www.publichealth.va.gov/exposures/coordinators.asp.

For the Toxic Embedded Fragments registry, contact an OEF/OIF/OND Clinical Coordinator at your nearest VA medical

facility to schedule a registry evaluation.
