Without Regard to Service Connection
The Veterans Administration announces that veterans of the Spanish-American War, Boxer Rebellion and Philippine Insurrection are now eligible for outpatient medical care without regard to service connection. The regulations implementing their right to such care are based on Public Law 791, 81st Congress. To be eligible, a veteran must have served some time between April 21, 1898 and July 4, 1902 (or July 15, 1903 if the service was in Moro Province, Philippine Islands) and must have been discharged other than dishonorably. An estimated 118,000 veterans have become potentially eligible for full medical and dental care in Veterans Administration clinics or at home by fee basis physicians and dentists.
