HOW TO APPLY

How to Apply

Veterans may apply for travel reimbursement by completing VA Form 10-3542(Veteran/Beneficiary Claim for Reimbursement of Travel Expenses).

The travel reimbursement form replaces older versions and local forms and improves the process for Veterans applying for mileage reimbursement at more than one VA facility.

Methods to request travel pay:

Visit the Beneficiary Travel Office after completing an appointment, orCall the Beneficiary Travel Office (this method will require an added step to complete and sign the travel reimbursement form), orSend the travel reimbursement form via either secure fax or mail to the local Beneficiary Travel Office.

Applications for payment must be submitted within 30 calendar days from the date the travel is completed or the date the applicant is notified he or she is eligible for travel payments if the request is based on a change in eligibility.

Mileage Rates

Mileage Calculations

The mapping tool VA uses for beneficiary travel will now calculate the driving distance using the fastest route and shortest route according to Bing maps. This is a change to the Beneficiary Travel program that will make the distance determinations consistent with distance calculations under the Veterans Choice Program.

General Travel

The current mileage reimbursement rate is $0.415 (41.5 cents) per mile for general travel.

Scheduled appointments qualify for round-trip mileage. Unscheduled visits may be limited to return mileage only. The reimbursement will be paid for travel to the closest VA facility unless a different location was determined by VA.
