Veterans Administration (VA) to Reimburse Testing Costs for Veterans

April 19, 2012

We are happy to announce that the United States Department of Veteran Affairs will reimburse testing costs for veterans taking BOC exams in all five certifications. The VA’s License and Certification Approval System (LACAS) allows a veteran to receive reimbursement for these examinations.

Any U.S. veteran with unused benefits can apply for reimbursement under the GI Bill. The VA provides benefits to be used for reimbursement of exam costs, depending on a veteran’s years of service, rank, and branch of service.

For important information on reimbursement, please click here.

When you are ready to apply for reimbursement, send required information to the appropriate VA office. You can find a list here.

For more information about test reimbursement, we encourage you to contact your local VA office.

Please pass this information along to veterans who might be interested in a career in O&P. As always, if we can provide any information about our certifications please don’t hesitate to call at 877.776.2200 or email us at cert@bocusa.org.
